I did some basic research and posted photos of our visit! https://driveinadventures.wordpress.com/2019/05/21/circe-drive-in-pennsylvania-open/
If anyone is interested, I found some interesting information about the history of the theater (plus photos from our visit!!) –

Here is all the information I could find, plus photos of the site as it is now. Sad to see it without some type of marker for historical purposes! https://driveinadventures.wordpress.com/2014/06/06/the-first-drive-in-theatre-ever-june-6-1933/
The Fly-In was really neat, and there are some remains if you visit the site. I did a post in Nov 2014 with some information :) https://driveinadventures.wordpress.com/2014/11/22/fly-in-drive-in-theater-wall-township-nj-closed/
Hey! I did some research recently and posted a new entry on the Shore Drive-In! https://driveinadventures.wordpress.com/2016/03/29/shore-drive-in-closed-nj/
Looking on Google Maps, there is a new building there now, where the screen was. I’m not sure when it was built (and when the screen was removed). :(
First, the screen is still standing and easily seen when driving by! @rgsears.
Also, (raymondgordonsears) – I am researching this theater for my blog, and it seems you might be able to help with your knowledge and work experience with Budco.
I’m trying to find the actual year this closed: I know it was definitely still open 1980, but closed in 1987 (because AMC was planning on building on the site).
Anyone have this information?
This Ad is for the Eric Theater that was in Pennsauken, not the Drive-In.
Hey Everyone – Brief, but still incomplete, update: the horse was taken down due to danger of falling. This information comes from Lawnside itself, but I have been unable to have someone get back to me that owns the site.
@Minbinder … I have been searching for information since last night! I saw a video of it being taken down. The rear legs were not attached so I wonder if they came apart or they separated them first. I took some photos last night of it on the ground, but it was gone today. My blog has the photos (www.driveinadventures.wordpress.com).
Hey Everyone! My most recent blog is on the Circus DI, and I can confirm that the Franks built the drive-in (I communicated with Bruce Frank, current CEO and President of Frank Theaters).

With the help of a flickr find and some advertisements, I was able to find out some information about the WHP drive-in. I posted the info on my drive-in blog (not much, but it’s something!). One big thing is that Sameric Owned/Operated this theater, as assumed.
I have some current photos of the outside of the theater on my blog, as well as some information! I agree with some of the posts though, I was not a fan of the commentary over the credits and film shorts.

Has anyone visited this site recently, since 2007?
I had such a great time visiting the Family Drive-in! My best friend moved to VA a few years ago and we went on one of my visits.
You can see some photos on my blog post – they still use the car speakers!! :)
CAD – I agree with you about lacking NJ Drive-Ins! The only site they visited was the White Horse DI, where the remaining artifact is the giant white horse high in the sky. If they were there, they easily could have driven to the site of the original (nothing remaining) or several others that have more noticeable remains (Pennsauken, Super 130, Circus in Hammonton, Absecon, etc.).
Regardless, it is a great thing that they have made this movie and documented drive-ins. I’m looking forward to watching it.
Hey Everyone! Thanks for your comments – I was able to write a blog post with some basic information and photos I took earlier this year.
http://driveinadventures.wordpress.com/2013/07/29/the-super-130-drive-in-edgewater-park-nj/ – the post and photos.
It will be sad to see it completely cleared out for housing!
This is a really nice drive-in! The owners are very friendly and truly care about the place. I was able to go their opening weekend this year in April. So cool!
This was actually called the “Moonlite Drive-In” – I visited the site a few days ago and the Marquee/Sign is out front with the correct spelling. THanks jwmovies for the address!
Still has a screen, concession/projection building, and speaker poles for sure.
You can check out some pictures from my visit here:
Does anyone have any information about this location? Besides the entrance road (small part), is there anything else remaining? Even something as small as tiles from the bathroom to a speaker pole….
The multi-plex has been torn down, and the entire site is for sale. There are construction vehicles present on the grounds.
This time last year (January 2012) the grading was still apparent for the drive-in.
