Welcome to Drive-ins of the South Pacific.
Hi all. This web page, inspired by Drive-ins Downunder, seeks to record the history of drive-in theatres in South Pacific countries. Many drive-in sites had comprehensively covered Australian, American and Canadian drive-in theatres (and to a lesser extent European drive-in theatres) but there hasn't been much on the Internet about drive-ins that existed on South Pacific islands. These drive-ins are unique in their cultural setting and make for interesting study.
Please note that Drive-in Theatre information and photos for this region is very hard to come by. Please email me if you have any useful information or photos.
The show's about to start...
So, lean back on your banana lounge, grab a can of SP and prepare for a truly unique drive-in theatre experience.
