Old Oz drive in/trash cinema resources

The CAARP database is an invaluable resource for looking up what pre-1980's Eurohorror/trash screened in Melbourne cinemas. It's absolutely surreal to think that the likes of Emmanuelle And The Last Cannibals, Man From Deep River, and Brutes And Savages were screened at drive-in's literally just down the road from where I grew up. I'd love to know the audience reactions at the time...

A rather jaw-dropping snapshot from the database:




'Drive-ins Downunder' is another great Australian drive-in resource with lots of pics (the drive-in era was before my time so this stuff is like a whole other world for me):

'Technicolour Yawn' is a true labour of love and a absolute wealth of information back when Melbourne was seemingly overrun with cinemas and drive-ins, and the odd grindhouse inbetween...
