Enderby drive-in takes cheeky swipe at Kyle, and his spray-painting love

The Starlight Drive-in had to deal with some annoying paint this opening weekend.
March 22, 2021 - 2:46 PM

Businesses have had enough to contend with in the last year without having to add graffiti clean-up to their roster of duties.

So, it only makes sense that when the Starlight Drive In had to deal with it they chose to respond in a delightfully tongue-in-cheek way that's gained some social media support.

"On the occasion of their upcoming anniversary, we can only hope that Kyle speaks to his partner about defacing private property," reads a post the drive-in made today, March 22, along with a picture of the graffiti that reads "I *heart* Kyle, 03/24/21."

"Your love added to our workload this week, but we will still be opened as planned on Thursday."

Enderby's Starlight Drive-in kicked off its 2021 season two months early, last weekend for Spring Break and will be open again this weekend.

The two movies showing this weekend are The Croods: A new Age and News of the World. The first film starts at 7:30 p.m. For more information on tickets and concessions, go here.

Tickets are limited due to the ongoing B.C. Provincial Health orders and the drive-in has a maximum capacity of 50 vehicles. Tickets have to be purchased in advance online and the movie theatre is reminding guests that an FM radio is required to tune into the film's sound. The drive-in is also no longer renting portable radios.

For all its current limitations, the drive-in is still a sight to behold. Towering roughly 60 feet into the air — the equivalent of a six-storey building — the 6,000-square feet screen is the biggest drive-in movie screen in North America. That fact alone is remarkable, but what's more remarkable is that the drive-in theatre exists at all.

It's one of only three in the province and among roughly a dozen in the entire country.
