    It is. But when I first moved to the ACT, and they still had drive in theatres, they had something else I’d never seen before. :rolleyes:

    A speaker to hang on a window on one side of the car, and an electric blow heater, to hang on the other side of the car! :eek:

    Skyline drive in at Taren Point. Just down the road from my childhood abode. Long gone. The screen was an iconic structure for many years. Last movie I saw there was "Gone In Sixty Seconds". Somewhat earlier (much earlier) was Mary Poppins at the Matraville Skyline.

    Oddly enough there is still a drive in just down the road at Heddon Greta.

    ......and I’m wondering how long it will be before some entrepreneur realises that a Drive in is a COVID safe way of getting folks, en masse, to pay to watch movies again :)

    Blacktown Drive In, on the shores of the Prospect Reservoir, is a going concern.

    They were really effective............ a bit deadly, but really effective at heating a small room, along with replacing any oxygen with nasty fumes. o_O
