Lunar Drive-In Flick

This Dandenong cinema is open every night of the year (except Christmas Day).

Staying in with just Netflix for company might be all the rage these days, but once upon a time, the local drive-in cinema was the must-do event. Dandenong's Lunar Drive-In was first opened in 1956 but the introduction of the VCR in the 1980s crippled the drive-in industry. However, in 2002, two movie buff brothers got together and purchased the drive-in site, putting up four massive screens and modernising the experience.

Showing the latest films alongside double features, family sessions and late-night screenings, load your car up with your best mates and head out to enjoy a night-time flick. Much cheaper than your regular cinema, a carload worth of tickets goes for as little as $25 on Monday–Wednesday, and $30 on Thursday–Sunday. Don't miss the Lunar Café, the on-site burger joint that serves up a typical diet of movie-going snacks and hot food to enjoy throughout your screening.
