    Hi Guys
    The weather is warming up and an evening at the drive in snuggled up under a doona with someone warm in the back of an old bus watching a movie.....in my experience best in september october...as the movies dont start too late....mid summer the first feature doesnt start till 9..makes for a late night
    our favourite spot is lunar drive in dandenong
    Would be great to get a few kombis together
    Cheers Jerome & Suzanne

    There is one in Heddon Greta NSW north of Sydney. I took the kids there about a month back. I actually felt like we stepped back in time. We got some really adoring looks, as well as a few people coming up for a chat (even during the movie) I must say it was really cozy. I have speakers in the tail gate hatch and I parked with the rear facing the screen. The kids sat in the back with the Dunas, whil me and the other half at the time drank wine by the heat of the exhaust... Good Times.

    I'll be interested but wouldn't stay for the all of the movies as I have 2 kids under 9. So that might be the only drama....might annoy a few people.

    Hi, Just read the thread about the drive in and saw that I missed it by a few years
    except for the last post.

    Anyone interested in another drive in event for the club in 2015.?

    Talking up old drive in's, they are reopening Dubbo's D.I for a one off in April..... my bet is that it will be around Easter..
    The Drive In is still all there, just really overgrown and battered. Even the old playground and 'zoo' enclosures still stand.
    It hasn't seen a movie for 30 plus years.
