How great that this drive-in has lasted seventy years.

This is another great place within an easy drive of greater Phila/central NJ.

I’ve been there twice, and I plan on getting there this year. Wonderful place! I know Mr. Shankweiler and Mr. Hollingstead are celebrating this incredible landmark in Drive-In Heaven.

Speaking of landmarks, Shankweiler’s should DEFINITELTY be designated as a National Historic Landmark.

Very cool the 2nd drive-in ever and is still open.

I have also been there for a show and it’s a FABULOUS place with a good presentation and nice people.

It truly is a National Historic Landmark!

This is a really nice drive-in! The owners are very friendly and truly care about the place. I was able to go their opening weekend this year in April. So cool!
