The Runway Drive In

The number of drive in movie theatres on PEI has doubled with the arrival of The Runway Drive In in Summerside.

It is, quite literally, almost right on the runway at Slemon Park (née CFB Summerside). The programming appears to be a mixture of films new and old: this weekend it will be Footloose, Grease, and The Secrets We Keep.

I still haven’t quite gotten over the closure of the Princess Pat Drive In in Cascumpec, and it seemed unlikely that the Island would see another in the west. I hope they do well.

A very beautiful and good spot to watch a movie peacefully.
Really appreciate your blog.

Yay! This is GREAT news. It’s one of our favourite things to do. Will it be open through September? We haven’t been since 2019. Mike will be pleased….
