THERE is no doubt a drive-in would draw crowds in Rockhampton, with some locals already making a five-hour drive west to the Jericho Drive-In Theatre.
The facility's co-ordinator, Katrina Haaksma, yesterday revealed some Rockhampton residents make the road trip to the monthly screenings.
Her comments came after Rockhampton Regional Councillor Cherie Rutherford suggested the council complete a feasibility study for a local drive-in.
Cr Rutherford's main target for the drive-in are 17 to 28-year-olds not interested in clubbing.
But Katrina and the drive-in's projectionist, Judy Howard, said their audiences of up to 90 people were filled with people of all age groups.
"In tourist season tourists go mad for (the drive-in)," Judy said.
Katrina, who grew up in nearby Alpha, has been going to the drive-in since she was a child.
Many Morning Bulletin online readers have enthusiastically embraced revisiting the drive-in scene.
As of yesterday afternoon, 94% of 318 polled supported the suggestion and 769 of the Bully's Facebook followers liked it.
Here is what some had to say.
Fayleen Zemlicoff: It would be a great project for using the land at the Music Bowl.
Karen Ricks: I'd like the younger generation to get the same experience we did. It was a lot of fun, back in the day in Rocky.
Phillip Burst: Put the couch in the ute and go to the drive-in. I'm there!
Dane Devize Heslin: Drive-in would fail. Video stores closing, people downloading, entertainment is at home now.
