1 person favorited this theater
The Shore Drive-In was Monmouth County’s “first” drive-in theatre. The Gala Opening presentation on 12 May 1948 was “Slave Girl” starring Yvonne De Carlo. Several plans to re-open the drive were considered since its closing in the early-1980’s, including the contruction of an indoor multi-screen theatre on the large open area of the drive-in property facing Route 33. The original area name of the Shore Drive-In location was known as Collingwood Park and not to be confused with Collingswood, which is located in Southern New Jersey.
The screen was demolished on January 25, 2001.
First it was to be a Wal-Mart, then a Home Depot. Now an approximately 130,000-square-foot retail shopping center is proposed for a large vacant tract at Wyckoff Road and Routes 33 and 34, the site of the former Shore Drive-In movie theater. This was October 17, 2004
The proposed Wal-Mart and Home Depot was eventually built a few miles to the East on Route 66 in Neptune, N.J.
The property is still not fully demolished and has been offered, over the years, by several realtor’s. Only a small portion of the southern section of the drive-n location is used as part of the Wawa store and gas stop.
A few miles South on Route 34 is the Fly-In Drive-In site in Belmar.
