Oakleigh Skyline Hoyts Drive-In

The Oakleigh Skyline Hoyts Drive-In opened on 10th March 1955 with James Stewart in “The Glenn Miller Story”. It was closed in 1990, and was sold for over 5 million Dollars. After a few visits by a circus, the site was cleared, and is now a retirement village(name unknown?) and a housing estate.

There is still some of the rear entrance road on the Clarinda Road side of the site and a light pole too, and some cyclone fencing and barbed wire on the Bourke Road side and some cypress trees too.
