Scottish Drive-In

The Scottish Drive-In opened on 21st February 1968 with Cary Grant in “Walk Don’t Run”, and was operated by Vernardos Holdings. It closed in the 1990’s. The name may have come from the Scottish Gympie gold mine? The drive-in is still there unused.

The drive-in is still mostly intact, but the screen is only a skeleton.

However, the projection booth/concession stand and ticket booth appears to be intact.

There is footage from the opening of the Scottish Drive-in on You Tube(50 seconds long, (no sound?)).

A November 2020 Google Street View shows the drive-in relatively unchanged since 2014. The screen is still a skeleton with no panels, but the concession stand/projection booth and ticket stand are still intact. The grounds themselves are still overgrown.

Despite the condition of the drive-in being fairly intact, I’m not sure how someone would go about reopening it. It’s behind several houses in a residential area. It does seem destined to never change.
