Becky's Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

I’ve never been here but I have driven past it several times and it does set you back to the 1950’s. The Route 45 Drive-In opened in it’s present location on June 26, 1946, and is in the middle of nowhere but it’s in pretty good shape. Check it out. They play either first or second run movies.

A second screen was added in 2005.

I know that there have been multiple NJ/PA postings recently for closed drive-ins. Just a reminder that this place is still OPEN and is a comfortable drive (2 hrs max) from most of the central NJ/greater Phila region. They frequently show double features. It is also very close to the beautiful Northampton Roxy if you want to make it a classic theater day.

Their homepage now lists two screens. Anyone know when this happened? The history tab doesn’t offer any information. Last time that I was there in 2004 it only had one screen.

The second screen was added in 2005. It consists of 3 stacked shipping containers with a wood face. A seperate “pole barn” booth is used with a platter system. Beautiful, bright, picture. I heard that a permenent screen may be in the works.

Also known as Route 45 Drive-In.

Was mentioned in the documentary “Drive-In Movie Memories” in 2001.

A great week end was had by all on Sat. as Beckys celebrated the 76th anniv. of Mr. Hollingshead great invention of the Drive-In!!
Close to a sell out at both screens, a wonderful evening with
Great food (as attested by the 70+ folks in line at both snack bars!)a DJ spinning good tunes, pony rides and attractions for the kids and fire works betweens movies. This is why we must support these dying icons of our country! I make this 70 mile trip from NJ frequently during the summer on my drive-in road trips (5 in Pa.!!)
This is a definite stop for any theatre/DI fan.

Screen 1 holds 450 cars and is 80' x 50' in size. Screen 2 holds 250 cars and is 66' x 33' in size. Each row is well trimmed with grass to help you relax and enjoy the double feature. Total of 700 cars.
