Cafeteria furnishings of the Frankston Drive-in during the 1970’s

19 Jan

Many patrons of the Frankston Drive-In came early and had dinner prior to the main feature inside the self-serve Cafeteria. Diners pushed their tray along the counter, helped themselves and payed the cashier at the end.
The floor was linoleum and the chairs were bright orange vinyl (considered stylish during the 70s). Patrons could “eat in” or “take away” (eating inside was usually preferred, as the hot cafeteria food would fog up movie-goers car windows).
Standard fare included hamburgers, hot dogs and chips; many returning for a chocolate covered (jumbo) ice cream cone upon intermission.
