Smile Skyline Drive-in Theatre Web Site

Hi all

I run a web site examining the history of drive-in theatres in the South Pacific region.

It is a work in progress and I am always grateful for any extra pictures, information and stories people can provide.

My PNG page covers the former Skyline drive-in in Port Moresby and to a lesser extent Wards Cinema

http://members.optusnet.com.au/~p.be...ein/index.html

If anyone has anything to add to the page I would be very grateful. I do hope you enjoy the memories.

Also does anyone know of any other drive-ins that may have existed in PNG at any stage?

Thanks Peter
(my email addressis on my web page)

Widgee is a small village 10Ks in off the Wide Bay Highway from the Bruce Highway toward another small town of Kilkivan near Maryborough and Gympie in Queensland. I think the wide bay highway branches off past the small town of Gomeri as the New England Highway (to Toowoomba then Tamworth NSW) before it goes all the way to Kingaroy (Sir Joh Bjelke Petersen's home town)

I believe the Widgee drive-in is still in operation there.

regards

Would this be the drive-in theatre at Wonga?

Actually what you know as the Widgee Drive-in is the Wonga Drive-in.
