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

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.

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.

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 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”

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

This theater opened in December of ‘91. I went here almost every week for 3-years straight, and continued to go here for years (saw some great films). I preferred to only go during the day when there was no one around…because at night, punk kids would shout at the movie and you couldn’t hear anything. Extremely annoying. It closed in 2006. The building still stands, it is not demolished.

I agree movie534. They should probably label them as Superfund sites.

This now closed and rotting hulk, along with its sister companion, the also closed and rotting Amboys Multiplex in Sayreville, N.J. should be demolished. It is a haven for graffitti taggers.

I drive by this theater nightly, the lights always turn on after dark, and the Marquee is now tagged with graffiti along with some of the doors on the building itself.

The theatre is closed, but not demolished. As you drive by Newark airport the theatre building is still clearly visible from the Turnpike.

There are reviews on Yahoo for this theater from April 2007. Is it closed and demolished?
