Located in Sharon to the north of Newmarket, ON. The North York Drive-In opened in 1955 and was owned by the same family for over 50 years. It has three screens. There has been talk of a fourth screen and hopefully this will become a reality.
The new snack concession building is located behind the old smaller snack bar which is now used for storage. The bigger screen 1 located by the highway is the original screen tower. It was closed in 2012. It 2013 it was reopened by Premiere Theatres as the Stardust Drive-In.

It looks like Cinema Treasures didn’t record the websites I put for the North York. It’s official website is http://www.northyorkdrivein.com There is also a page I made for it on my site at http://i_love_drive_ins.tripod.com/home/id33.html You can also see it on Drive-ins.com at http://www.drive-ins.com/theater/xxtnort . The North York Drive-in is a beautiful drive-in, I have not been here yet but cannot wait to visit it. Screen 2 looks identical to screen 2 from the 400 Drive-in. I have some pictures a friend took of it for me. I will post it whenever the site has their add-a-photo up and running.

This drive-in closed in 2012 as they lacked the funds to upgrade to digital projection.
The drive-in was bought by Premier Theatres in 2013 and reopened with the new name Stardust Drive-In Newmarket. Here’s the new web site.
