Paramus Drive-In

The Route 4 Drive-In was opened on August 19, 1947 with Jane Frazee in “Calendar Girl” & Dennis O'Keefe in “Mr District Attorney” . In 1951 it was renamed Paramus Drive-In. This drive-in existed well into the 1960’s. The theatre has been demolished and is now a parking lot for a shopping center.

Sometime in the late 1980s this theater closed down.

jwmovies is correct, the address is 94 New Jersey 4, Paramus, NJ.

Today, it is a large parking lot with no traces of the drive-in remaining. http://tinyurl.com/mw8cev8

This was the first movie theater in Paramus to open in the area, followed by the mall theater, then the Route 4 and 17 theaters, then cinema 35, and currently AMC. Looks like regal might not have a theater in Paramus Park at all.

This must have been where my parents took us to see My Fair Lady though we usually went to the Nyack or 303. Children under 12 free. Definitely saw Finian’s Rainbow here and I remember the lights from the Garden State Plaza being a distraction. Moviebuff you left off the Century which was a beautiful single screen theater on the edge of the Plaza parking lot until they split it down the middle in the early 70s and it became a dump.
