Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

Located on the Maple Shade Circle where Routes 38, 41 and 73 met, the drive-in was on the east side of the circle between 38 and 41. The circle became an infamous bottleneck, especially after Moorestown Mall opened a short distance to the east, and was replaced by a system of overpasses and ramps in the late-1960’s.

The Circle Drive-In opened July 20, 1955. Last operated by the Milgram chain in the early-1970-s before it was replaced by an auto dealership.
