US 1 North Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

This drive-in was the last drive-in to be built in the area. It opened as a single screen theater, and later converted to 2 screens. It was operated by the Sameric Corporation.

I was a projectionist here for about 3 years during the single screen era, and for a short time into the 2 screen era. I ran “Jaws” 146 times. It was closed in 1986

PLEASE CHANGE ADDRESS TO:

260 US 1

The address 390 Lincoln Highway (US 1) is way off. The new address is as close an address as you can get to the Drive-In. You can see the remains of the Drive-In Southeast of the Red Dot on the Map.

Held 900 cars.

Torn down in 1991 and the screen was used at the Pike in Pennsylvania.

More info and photos are always welcome.

if i had the money, i reopen this drive in theater, but keep it as a single screen theater, seeing that’s how the theater was originally laid out as.
