The Tillicum Outdoor Theatre – Drive movie event

Brings Back the nostalgic fun of the good ol days, of the 50s, 60s,70s, it will be hold our first drive in movie event at heritage acres, if the public support for this event is big enough we will look into doing this drive in movie event at Western Speedway which can accommodate 500 cars!

If you’d love to be a part of this cause and help us spread the word and help it become something really great, then let us know please contact: the tillicum tee shirt creator an movie event organizer: email jeffrey at: or call: 250-384-9187 { leave message } let him you would like a copy of the t-shirt story with the movie event info in one printable PDF file sent to your email, this PDF file is setup to print out on a piece of 11x 17 paper if you prefer to you can forward this PDF file to anyone you know that would love to attend this movie event. To be held soon at: Heritage acres 7321 lochside drive out on the pat bay highway, this summer 2018.

If you remember the old Tillicum Drive in an have great memories of it when you were a kid or teenager then the way   you should see it is “this is your drive in” “its our drive in”… “it belongs to all of us who love it”… a one time only twenty five dollar admission is required this fee applies to yourself an a car load of anyone who wants to come along to the   event you an your car load ahev the have the option of getting a “were all going back” Return of the: Tillicum drive in-tee shirt to be worn by you and whom ever to all our tillicum drive in events identify yourself to us an to others like you who “love the tilicum drive in an are proud to show it” the tee shirt offer also applies to larger sum investor / Donators of $100.00 or more.

BONUS: any substantial donations would have the exclusive option of receiving a percentage of all incomes generated by the tillicum drive in in the future from tickets, concessions, merchandise, an ongoing percentage income would be yours, guaranteed ! As our way to thank you for your donation an or investment and helping support a beloved drive in “whose time has come again” in a city where they have torn down an taken away all we remember in our youth! mini golf, both bowling lanes, wooded wonderland out by Elk lake, including Johnny Zee’s arcade the Beachcomber restaurant an the Jolly Friar, downtown Victoria this is for those of you who share the passion for all of the old stuff an the tillicum drive in.  I say lets all work together an do whatever we can to bring back this one place we all thought was gone forever, bring it back an put an end to the sadness some of us feel because we cant go to a drive in if we so choose, then all the generations attending a tillicum drive in movie event will see an understand how awesome movie entertainment can be without cell phones an computers they will see how “the old ways are always better, and will cure the high tech blues” .

Our Dream and Goal: when we get enough of the public’s support we can then do this event at Western Speedway which has the capacity for 500 cars, this would have to be a twenty dollar per car load admission movie event the western speedway movie event would give all of us an awesome reason to be excited again, about going to a movie outdoors, a place for Vancouver island hot rod owners to come an chew the fat about their rides during the day as the regular people enjoy seeing them then come nightfall we all get comfy enjoy a really good family movie situated however we like: lawn chairs, sleeping bags in truck beds, or open vans facing backwards etc, enjoying once again that “special drive in from our youth we all love so darn much !”
