In the early 1970's, this drive-in and those nearby placed ads in La Presse and the Star. I provided an link for an French-language ad.

The reason that Plattsburgh, Champlain had so many drive-in is that Drive-In was not allowed in Quebec until 1970, when three opened in Montreal's South Shore (CP Chateauguay, CP St. Mathieu and CP Boucherville).
