There is a K-Mart and Shop Rite on the site now…right near where Route 46 (then known as Rt. 6) and I-80 meet.

Anyone know when it opened. My 1956 filmbook does not have it listed.

I recall seeing Victor Mature in Hannibal, A Dog of Flanders, 13 Fighting Men around 1960.

Looking at a Cue Magazine from 1970, this was the only DI in NY-NJ that week to program AL CAPONE-KING OF THE ROARING 20s-YOUNG DILLINGER. Great DI fare. The other DIs were cashing in on the early days of soft core sexploitation flics; and other DI fodder…..the weekly biker films. j

It must have been 1960 then based upon my memories.

As a kid, Dad would drive us out from NYC and pick from the 3 Drive-Ins on Rt. 3 & Rt. 46 (this one was furthest, The Totawa and the Rt 3 were the other two)
