Coopers Plains Skyline
Capacity: 650 Cars
The only Hoyts drive-in in Queensland. It followed very much in the style of their southern 1960's drive-ins and also has similarities to both Wagga and Tamworth.
Hoyts used the rear snack bar design in several later drive-in theatres. It is not known if they did this to maximise the land area or for other reasons. The only single screen drive-in in Australia from this era that retains this design today is Wallis's Gepps Cross Mainline in Adelaide.
This is as elaborate as it gets. Thousands of dollars were spent here creating a very well appointed outdoor dining and viewing area. To think all of this was bulldozed, very culturally short-sighted bureaucrats presided over hundreds of such demolisions...and still do!
