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.

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
