On Sunday night we finally went down to Blacktown to go to the Skyline Drive-In Cinema. As regulars at the Yatala Drive-In when we lived on the Gold Coast, we quite missed it, so it was great to go! It looks like the screens and cafe have been recently redone and look great!

Price wise it is currently $10 per person per movie which makes it a bit cheaper than Yatala for one movie, or more expensive for two.

It was a lot quicker and easier to get in because the queue isn’t across a main road, the entrance is at the end of a road and it loops back on itself, so you aren’t fighting with two directions of traffic. The fact that you can book your tickets online probably also helps with moving cars through a bit quicker as well.

The speakers are not movable, so you can’t stick them in your car, if it’s cold like it was this weekend, you have to either rug up or use the car radio (or a battery radio) to hear anything. Nothing wrong with that mind you, but it is nice to not have to worry about flattening the car battery! That said though, the screens seem much better set out, we were parked off to one side but could still see the screen clearly without any loss of image clarity as sometimes seems to happen at Yatala.

It is run by Event Cinema’s and it looks like they’ve put a bit into it which is great when they refurbished it last year, it was well worth the drive down to Blacktown for it!

We saw Lucy which was pretty good. The ending could have been a bit cooler (I personally don’t see how she could fit all that data on a USB stick but anyway), nevertheless though it was a decent movie. Very heavy on the evolution though.

Of course, one can’t go to the drive-in without some form of food, we got Eagle Boys and decided to try their new Pizza Pie!

It’s an interesting concept and it was pretty good. We got the beef Pizza Pie to try and it had decent shredded beef, not the ground stuff that they normally put on the pizza. The only problem was it was a bit dry. It really could have used some more gravy, but I guess that would create the problem of the base going soggy. I wouldn’t mind trying the spinach and ricotta one, but I’d probably stick to normal pizza in the future over these.

Save money on your holiday

Travel Money & Currency Conversion: We use both Up Bank and Wise for the best currency conversion rates with support for Apple Pay and Android Pay plus excellent in-app customer support while you are travelling.

Flights: We check a few sites for different prices. Travelling from Australia, I always check Qantas directly for reward flights, but otherwise, I check and compare the cost of flights with SkyScanner. It’s always worth checking alternative routes and days, especially where there are multiple stopover options or nearby alternative airports.

Accommodation: We usually book through Agoda as we find their prices are the lowest and cancellation policies + loyalty benefits work out the best. We also use Airbnb from time to time.

Car Rental: We use AutoEurope to compare rental car prices with all the big international brands like Europcar, Budget, Hertz and Avis. We usually end up using Avis or Europcar as they offer the best deals (make sure to check their current offers for bonus discounts) and both maintain their vehicles well with relatively new fleets.

Tours & Activities: We generally try to book activities through one of these third-party sites ViatorGet Your Guide & Klook due to their flexible cancellation policies (saved us a lot of money trying to travel post-COVID) and price guarantees (often better prices than booking direct). We also book through Red Balloon on occasion for more unique Aussie and NZ activities.

Home is Australia, and while they don’t spend all their time travelling the world, Matt and his wife like to take the time to really explore and get to know a place, even if that means spending a lot longer there than normal tourists might.
