Jericho Drive-in

Opened: 1969
Location: Jericho, Central Qld
Capacity: 30 Cars plus walk-ins
Screens: One
Operator: Local Shire 

Here is a small, perhaps the worlds smallest, drive-in theatre. It is now open once again and entertains locals and enthralls tourists. Wayne Mason reports that the drive-in operates once per month on a Saturday night as a fund raiser and to date since re-opening has screened blockbusters such as Spiderman and Blackhawk Down.

How is it all the deluxe 1000 car drive-ins have closed and Jericho remains? Terry Regester photo, 2002.

Here can be seen the projection box and alongside the covered “walk-in” seats once common to drive-ins all over the country. In the southern states the walk-ins were enclosed, but in QLD, NT and WA they were most often exposed and/or covered canvas slings. Terry Regester photo, 2002
