PTBO Pics & Coverage: The Peterborough Mustang Drive-In Is No More?

Last weekend (Victoria Day weekend) usually marks the opening weekend for the Mustang Drive-In. Checking the website left us with unanswered questions as there was no sign of what was to come for their 2013 season. After calling the hotline phone number, we were left stumped when it was no longer in service. According to The Starlite, it is apparently closed for this year. Sad news for outdoor movie theatre fans who love to watch movies under the stars. Hopefully it will open up again next year.
