I lived down the street back in 1978 and my brother and I, along with a neighbor kid (we were in our young teens) used to sneak in when it was closed and steal speakers off of the posts. I know, dumb. We were kids. Kind of funny that the jail is there now!

Another drive-in to take avantage of Quebec's ban on drive-ins, which lasted until 1970
