Built on the site of the Newark Drive-In, and opened in 1991, this theater lured moviegoers near Newark Airport with urban fare. Two years later, Loews opened its own theater and is the only one operating in Newark, NJ due to competition from the larger Jersey Gardens megaplex in neighboring Elizabeth, which opened seven years after the Loews opened.

It was demolished in March 2014.

Was this on the sight of the old Newark Drive -In?

Yes. It was the sire of the old Newark Drive-In

On my way to New York City this morning just after sunrise, the Turnpike was void of any traffic so I slowed to look at this theatre. It appears from the road that all of the roof top air condition units have been stripped of useable parts/copper, etc. All panels are removed and you can clearly see empty spaces within the units. No doubt rain water must pour in during storms. There is also a banner on the building “For Sale”

Did they tear this down and leave the sign? I could swear I saw the sign the other day driving up the NJTP in Newark.

On my way into the city yesterday on the bus, for the first time in 3 months, the theatre is now nothing but a very small pile of rubble. And yes the Multiplex sign by the turnpike is still there as is the marquee by rte 1. A For Sale sign hangs from it.

How many multiplexes did National Amusments open on drive in site and close in less then 20 year. Besides this I can name the Whitestone Multiplex in the Bronx, the Atco multiplex in South Jersey and there is one more in North Jersey off the New Jersey turnpike.

This is the theatre your thinking about. Also the Amboys Multiplex opened in 1979 and closed in 2005.
