An undated postcard from the “Starlight Gardens and Drive-In” indicated that it was 10 miles east of Nelson BC, operated seven nights a week, and was managed by T. Hetherington. It showed a road sign with “Starlight” in script, advertising the 1963 film “4 for Texas” starring Frank Sinatra.
The Motion Picture Almanac first included Nelson’s “Starlite” in 1955, with capacity 288 cars, owner Starlite Drive-In Ltd. In 1956, the owner changed to J. Hetherington, and that listing continued through 1976, when the MPA dropped its Canadian drive-in lists.
The 1956-57 Year Book Canadian Motion Picture Industry drive-in list included the “Starlight” in Nelson, capacity 288, owners T. Hetherington, I. Toffee, O. Bird.
The only highway leading east from Nelson is today’s 3A, and there’s a Starlight Road in Crescent Bay about 12 miles from Nelson.
