Previous Names: Monmouth County Airport Fly-In Drive-In
This theatre was another first. On June 3, 1948 Edward Brown Jr., a former navy pilot, opened the first Fly-In Drive-In theatre. There was room for 500 cars and 25 airplanes. The planes landed at an airfield next to the drive-in (today known as Monmouth Executive Airport), then they would taxi to the last row which was set up for planes. The charge for the planes was 25 cents. When the movies were over Mr. Brown provided a jeep to tow the planes back to the airfield. It was operated by Frank Damis and Eastern Management Outdoor Theatres of Newark, NJ.
