Fully operational Drive-In's are now rarities in their own rights. Subsequently, Dromana 3 Drive-In is not only an iconic attraction on the Peninsula it is also a Heritage and National trust listed site. Situated a mere one minute drive from the Mornington Peninsula Freeway in Dromana and only 70 minutes drive from actual Melbourne CBD this venue could easily become a regular on any families fun day list.

Three large screens shows up to three different films a night simultaneously meaning a total of up to 9 movies showing each movie night. All you need do is pull up, park and flick on your FM car stereo or portable. Radio not working? No worries, you can even hire one whilst you are there. The original veteran freestanding radios are now 'Retired' after 40 of service.

Whats On:

During school holidays Dromana 3 Drive- In would have to be topping everybody's list with on site playground, early bird shows and family admission prices.There is even a playing field for the older kids or young at heart to get out the cricket set.

Don't forget the very impressive retro style Shel's Diner modelled just like an authentic 50's style American Diner inspired by Mel's Diner at Universal Studios in the states. Packed with movie memorabilia and the yummiest home made burgers, souvlakis and nachos money can buy.

While we are at it.. Who would have thought you could have a function at a Drive-In? Well at Dromana 3 you can. Everything from birthdays, charity events, social clubs and even vintage/ special car enthusiast shows. These function service includes early admission, exclusive use of Shel's Diner and even staff incentives for corporate do's.
