The Atco Multiplex Cinemas is on White Horse Pike, at the intersection of Routes 30 and 73. The theatre is in South Jersey, in the Philadelphia suburbs and was built on part of the site of the Atco Drive-In, which closed in September 1989. The Atco Multiplex Cinemas was opened December 13, 1991 and was operated by National Amusements.

They closed the first-run Atco Multiplex Cinemas in September 2008. It was demolished by 2011.

I guess the ghost in #12 won’t have anyone to bother now:

Another in a long list of Redstones old drive-in properties that will sit empty. In the past few years Atco, along with the Amboys and All-Jersey (former Newark Drive-in) have now closed, and as of this post, the latter 2 still sit vacant and boarded up.

Had the Atco survive into this decade, it would’ve gotten digital projection and 3d.

When I drive by the site in July the multiplex has been completely demolished :–( When it opened I remember that having 14 screens at one theatre was just beyond belief.

Atco Drive In Theatre is an early memory in my 64yr life. I watched it being built in 1956. My late Dad owned a tavern called Sadler’s Tavern two doors down on the White Horse Pike in 1955- 1957. I vividly remember walking back to the observe the screen being constructed and My dad and mom bringing me and my two brothers to see Creature From The Black Lagoon. I played on the swings and monkey bars while waiting for the darkness to start the movie. In 1972 while stationed at Fort Dix I brought a date to the still functioning drive-in with two bottles of bones farm strawberry hill. I did not watch the movie.
