Was also known as the Route 59 Drive-In from the “Abandoned but not Forgotten” website.

There is a picture of this drive-in marquee with looming screen in the new issue of Weird NJ.

I rode by this Drive-In last Sunday-the screen and marquee are still standing. I want to go take pictures soon!

Above address is incorrect. This is several blocks south. Approx. address for this drive-in was 19 New York 59. The huge screen is still up. Concession foundation is still there as are all the ramps.

Property is now a “Park and Ride” so people can catch the bus. Screen still in good shape, but half the property is overgrown. Concession stand/projection booth long gone, but restoration is possible.

As an aside, the Google street view from 2016 shows the driver of a pickup on the north lane using his hand to show his disapproval of being on Google street view.
