FILM-GOERS took a trip back to the life in the 1950s as portrayed in the 1970s television series Happy Days at the reopening of Blacktown's drive-in cinema in Prospect on Friday.
The 50-year-old drive-in on Cricketers Arms Road was relaunched as Event Cinema's Skyline Drive In after a $1 million refurbishment.
The theatre also offers families, couples and friends a night out in a Happy Days style dinner with waitresses in red-and-white striped uniforms serving Angus beef burgers, hot dogs, buffalo chicken wings, milkshakes and frozen soda.
They can then watch the latest blockbuster movies such as Captain Phillips, Gravity and Rush under the stars in a convertible or in a pick-up truck while enjoying a tasty treat from the diner menu.
The sound system has been upgraded and is replayed by FM transmission stereo signal for the cinema-goers.
The drive-in theatre is next to the new hotel, Atura Blacktown, and near Wet 'n' Wild Sydney Park, which is due to open in December.
"The Skyline Drive In represents a distinct part of Sydney's history," said AHL's group managing director, David Seargeant.
"Being the only remaining drive-in in Sydney, we saw a duty to preserve this part of history and develop it even further to create a truly unique and nostalgic experience for our cinema customers."
