This was a 700 car drive-in operated by the Budco chain when it opened in 1949. Budco was later bought by AMC. The theatre was closed in July 1987. The drive-in was reopened in late-July, 2004 and a second screen was added in 2008. In 2015 it is the only drive-in theatre operating in the state of New Jersey.

Saw The Simpsons Movie and 1408 this summer – my first drive-in experience! Nice big screen and all, and I like that the sound comes through the car stereo, but every loud noise from the movie caused the sound to shift into mono for a bit.

Anyway, both movies were 2.35 widescreen which filled the screen exactly…I think seeing 1.85 movies would be distracting with the blank space at each side…

I saw Red eye and the 40 Year Old Virgin there a few years back. My wife and I had a great time. All in all, it was a cheap date night. Good sound through the car speakers. Pretty big crowd on a beautiful evening. Glad to see it’s back. The long lines between features at the women’s bathroom brought back memories. I also liked the old advertisments and 3 Stooges shorts.

The Delsea has added a second screen in 2008.

Mentioned in the NYTimes CT Section about the 2 drive-ins left in Connecticut.

Recieved an e mail from this drive in. Interesting how they say to have rear hatches and trunks open and interior lights on upon approach to boxoffice. They say no outside food or drink allowed and I guess they really enforce it. I think some people would be put off by this. Just saying.

That would piss me off markp and I wouldn’t go there.

Considering how few Drive-Ins there are left, the owner appears to hold the cards.
I will say, though, that the rule has never been enforced when I have gone.
