Pennsauken Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Opened in the late-1950’s by JB & Melvin Fox, their first and only venture into drive-ins.

Not sure how long this one lasted as I can’t find it listed in the 1970 or 1976 Film Daily Yearbooks.

Any additional information on this theatre would be greatly appreciated.

Now that ballroom is some kind of Christian church. The screen next door still stands.

Across the street are piles of dirt and concrete from what used to be the Mart and the UA. Nothing seems to be happening there.

Is this on Admiral Wilson boulevard? My Jersey geography is a little rusty now, although I used to take the NJ Transit bus from AC to Philly all the time. That went down 73, I think.

No, this one’s where Route 73 and US 130 intersect, where Route 90 (from the Betsy Ross Bridge) ends.

Here is a January 2011 photo of the screen. Trees are getting in the way…

Was just by the old D-I today. Screen is in good condition. Build a projection booth, snack bar and a box office and start showing movies. (Don’t forget to cut down thw trees) rg

Uploaded aerial from 1967. Not there in 1965 or earlier views. So it could not have opened up in late 1950’s.
