The Koorda Community Drive In was built by the Shire in October of 1965. Paddy Baker was the first lessee, and he employed two local men, Len Thompson and W.J. (Jim) Weymouth, to operate it for him.
The Koorda Drive-In currently has a capacity of approximately 110 cars and use RCA in car speakers, although FM radio transmission has now been added. The FM radio transmission sound system is of superior digital quality.
The Koorda Drive In screens double features from February through to December, once a month, although single showings are sometimes shown as special events with private and event screenings are also possible on request.
Koorda is one of only a few Drive In’s that is still operating in WA and is an affordable and fun night out for the entire family.
