Drive-In Theatres Return to New Jersey

Drive-ins existed in New Jersey from 1933 until 1991, but quietly faded away and have been missing completely from the state for the last 13 years. But there’s good news: a drive-in theatre has reopened in Vineland! With room for 700 cars and boasting one of the largest screens in the world, the Delsea Drive-In is bringing the outdoor theatre experience back to the Garden State.

Personally, I’m looking forward to checking out a first run film and changing to a particular station in my car. The last time I was at a drive-in was in 1980 or 81 when I saw Superman II with my dad and cousin. It’s one of those things that’s disappeared over the years, but has a certain charm to it that a revival might be in order.

Anyone have any particularly memorable drive-in experiences?

I use to manage the Ridge Pike Drive-In in PA. Saturdays drew the most peoople. We had a snack bar that contained everything from Pop Corn to Cheese Burgers. We had a full kitchen. Those were the days. I have allot of Drive-In stories. I miss it.

Our favorite USED TO BE Haar’s on Rt 15 in Dillsburg, PA; but, they won’t let dogs in any more. Our new favorite is the Pike on Rt 15 just south of Williamsport, PA. Three screens, great (new) owners, creditable concession stand.

What is this then?
