The Yatala 3 Drive-In Theatre offers a refreshingly unique alternative to Cineplexes and other forms of today’s commercialised entertainment. The Yatala 3 Drive-In appeals to young and old alike – especially families – all looking for good value for their entertainment dollar.
The Yatala Drive-in is more than just movies; it’s about starry nights, cruisin’ in and cookin’ out!
It’s a community event really. There’s something about the drive-in that makes people extra-sociable. It’s kind of like camping out. So there are blankets, air mattresses, folding chairs, coolers, and the all important bug spray. When school holidays arrive, parents dress their youngest children in their pyjamas, and head for the Drive-In.
Cars roll in with headlights dimmed, engines purring and back seats piled high with pillows & kids. Clutching checked rugs and candy, youngsters pile out of cars as parents set up outdoor furniture beside small steel-encased speakers dating from the 1950s. Once the parking parameter is established the next port of call is the Candy Bar, filled with the scent of sweet syrupy popcorn and choc tops. Holding hands & laughing they return carrying hot dogs and popcorn, wearing the sort of smiles kids wear when they are allowed outside at night and the air is full of wonder There’s no babysitter needed, there’s no need to dress up and there aren’t any parking worries.
With no dress code rules, attire varies from shorts and thongs to cocktail wear. And some have been known to arrive resplendent in one-piece pyjamas, finished off with fluffy dog-eared slippers. This strange feeling of nostalgia and yesteryear is what keeps the Yatala Drive-In Movie Theatre alive.
The Yatala 3 Drive-In is open 7 nights per week & shows all the latest blockbusters. 2 movies are our speciality for less than the cost of a single feature at your conventional multiplex. Join the Bumper Sticker Club and gain entry for a carload four (4) for only $30 Monday thru Thursday excluding school holidays.
Movie sound is heard through the conventional window speaker or tune to FM STEREO SOUND through your Car Radio.
