There is a Black Horse Pike in South Jersey that runs from the shore to Philadelphia. There is also a White Horse Pike (Route 30) that does the same. I think these date back to the nineteenth century. In Pleasantville there is the Old Black Horse Pike, which used to be a carriage road to Atlantic City. You can still follow it for a while.

This drive-in was paved over years ago. Status should be closed/demolished. I do remember seeing the sign in the late sixties or thereabouts.

This drive-in closed later than ‘78. I saw a triple-bill of Dragonslayer, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and Clash of the Titans there in '81 or '82. The picture was abysmally dark and you could barely see the movie.

The original screen was extremely large. I think it was probably one of the largest screens in the northeast.
