There were celebrations Under the Stars on Saturday 27th July when locals gathered to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of a local institution – The Jericho Drive-In Theatre.

Often dubbed “Australia’s smallest Drive-In”, the rural Jericho theatre has provision for both cars and patrons on foot with the projection-room flanked by tiered levels of comfortable deck-chair seating.

The old 35mm projection gear was replaced a few years ago with digital machine making it easier to get newer releases, as well as screen alternative programming such as sport telecasts on the big screen.

Saturday night- 50 years later!


The 50th Anniversary night was celebrated with food, music and a program that repeated the opening screening 50 years ago with Cartoons and the classic musical “The Sound of Music”.

The theatre has become quite a tourist attraction in its own right – located right on the main street of town, perfectly sited for what was, and still is an important focal point for the local community.

We wish Jericho Drive-In a very Happy 50th Birthday indeed – and every success for the next 50 years!
