The Robin Hood movie on the last night of operation was called “Robin Hood Prince of thieves”.

The snack bar(and bio box?) building might still be there behind a house, along with the entrance(or exit road?) and fences(and gate?) and(ramps(graded out?)?) and some trees around the sides.

The screen was only finished being erected 5 minutes before the opening night of the drive-in theatre. Later called Village Southern Drive-in after Hoyts sold the drive-in to Village. There is a road running though the former drive-in site called Southern Court.
