Think family visits to the movies are too expensive? A cheaper option might be a visit to a drive in.

Although drive-in cinemas might be considered a dying breed (there used to to be 60 in Melbourne) they do still exist, albeit only three. When you do visit, you're looking at a cheapish evening out for the family. Prices vary from $20 - $40 for a car load.



The three remaining drive-in cinemas that still operate in Melbourne are:

Coburg Drive-In Theatre

Operated by Village Cinemas, Coburg Drive-In offers a night of 'good old fashioned movie fun'.

Don't expect 3D movies, but you can enjoy a 50s style experience with food available to buy, otherwise bring your own, along with blankets if it's a chilly night of course.

Address: 155 Newlands Road, Coburg
Book: HERE

Lunar Drive-In Theatre

The Lunar Drive-In Theatre in Dandenong is "Australia's largest drive-in theatre" with three big screens.

The Lunar Drive-In is open every night and the cafe is open every night (closing at 9:35pm) serving burgers, chips, donuts, popcorn and drinks at affordable prices.

Address: 115 South Gippsland Hwy, Dandenong
Book: HERE

Dromana Drive-In

Head down the Mornington Peninsula to stop by the Droama Drive-In, home to the original 1961 screen that is the earliest remaining in Victoria and still in use today.

The Dromana Drive-In is so significant that it is now Heritage Victoria and National Trust Listed.

Eat at Shel’s Diner, modelled on the authentic 50’s style American Diner complete with ‘back seat’ bench seats, bar stools, black & white tiles on the floors to the walls.

Address: 133 Nepean Hwy, Dromana
Book: HERE
