Narellan Gayline Drive-in Movie Theatre

One of the notable attractions in the local area in the 1960s-1990s was the Narellan Gayline Drive-in Movie Theatre, which was located on Morshead Road, Narellan (now Narellan Vale).

A little bit of Camden Modernism that has disappeared.

Along with rock ‘n roll, transistor radios, the bikini, the mini-skirt, it defined the lifestyle of the baby boomers. It was as popular with teenagers as it was with young families. It was a defining moment for a 20th century culture that was based around the icons of the period: cars and movies.

The drive in at Narellan was owned and operated from 1967-1992  by EJ Frazer and operated as the Narellan Gayline Drive in Movie Theatre.
