The drive-in might seem like a relic from the days of poodle skirts and malted milkshakes but, in today's social distancing world, a trip to the drive-in is a cosy way to pass a night. You can see cinema under the stars at the following venues in Victoria.

Note: some venues may be closed or have limited availability during COVID lockdowns. Please check with the venue before making plans.

Lunar Drive-In Theatre

The Lunar Drive-In Theatre (115 South Gippsland Highway, Dandenong) opened in 1956, approximately six months before television was introduced to Australia and more than 50 years later, it remains a popular source of cheap entertainment for families.

Australia's largest drive-in theatre offers four screens playing the latest Hollywood blockbusters. Lunar Drive-In Theatre is open every night of the year except Christmas and entry is $30 per carload ($25 on Monday to Wednesday). The Lunar Cafe is also open every night and offers hamburgers and other hot snacks.

Village Coburg Drive-In

Village Coburg Drive-In (155 Newlands Road, Coburg North) offers a family-friendly night out, with children under 12 getting in for free and dogs welcome. New release blockbuster movies are screen through laser-powered projectors and sound is delivered through your car stereo.

If you're hungry, head over the to American-style diner for hamburgers, chilli dogs and fried chicken, or have something delivered straight to your car.

Dromana 3 Drive-In

Dromana 3 Drive-In (133 Nepean Highway, Dromana) is located on the Mornington Peninsula, approximately 50 kilometres south of Melbourne. In this picturesque setting, you can enjoy movies and event TV for $18 for adults and $12 for children. You can also bring your own deck chair or hire one for $3, and you will need to bring your own portable FM radio for sound.

Mornington Peninsula is full of amazing things to see and do, so why not go a little earlier and make a day or it?
