Announced last Wednesday was some very exciting news: the drive-in is re-opening!

Going back to it's roots, the Highland Drive-In was the name of the original drive-in that opened in the 1950s. When it closed, it was owned by Empire Theatres, which was bought by Cineplex in 2013. 

The property is located at 159 Old Truro Rd. Westville, NS. It's just off Exit 21 on H, off of Exit 21 on the Trans Canada Highway. 

The news of the return of the drive-in was met with excitement across the whole community, as a beloved landmark for many, and an opportunity for physical-distancing outings, once it's up and running.

Eric Barker is the Owner/Operator, who has quietly owned the drive-in for the past 6 years, and the project is being spear headed by Ryan Fraser, owner of Kings Head Consulting who is working with a team to get it up and running as soon as possible. 

Updates can be found on the Highland Drive-In's Facebook page HERE.

We look forward to seeing this community treasure re-open - see you at the movies!
