The Brunswick Drive-In was part of the United Artists chain from at least 1976.

-I was only here once. We saw a great double feature: “Forbidden Planet” and “Planet of the Apes.” The place was falling apart around the edges. It was in 1980-81, I believe.

That was a very laid back-country type of drive in. The buildings were made to look kind of like log cabins if I remember correctly. It felt like you were out in the woods. If you blinked you would drive right by it. The locals knew the “back” way in in order to beat the traffic on rt. 1. I remember cars backine up on rt. 1 on big openings. Sadly missed…..Gary

I grew up in a house not more than a ¼ mile from theater. We use to hang out in a park that was right behind theater as a teenager. I remember this drive in as ours they use to let us hang out for free in back row of drive in, my brother worked there i use to get there early so he could give me free fries they had the best. The theater was a part of my best memories. Like alot of drive in movies theaters in that area there was a little playground for the kids. As the above poster says it was a log cabin style refreshment building that lol you could raise your hand as you walked by movie projection from building and see it on the screen, this drive inn movie theater like all the others i frequented in central jersey will be sadly missed!!!…….. john
