One of the few remaining drive-in theatres in the Ottawa-Gatineau area has dimmed its screens for the last time. Ciné-Parc Templeton in east Gatineau, Que., confirmed to Radio-Canada Wednesday it had gone out of business. The theatre, which wrapped up its 45th season last fall, sold its equipment to the Belle Neige ski resort in Val-Morin, Que., northwest of Montreal, according to owner Paul Touchet. The Val-Morin resort intends to open its own drive-in theatre next month. In 2011, the City of Gatineau considered expropriating the drive-in's property to install a waste treatment centre, but a petition with some 3,000 signatures halted those plans.
