Route 46 Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Route 46 Drive-In was in Saddle Brook, NJ on Route 46 West, to the west of Lodi Circle. There is a strip mall there now with a McDonalds and Walmart. The screen was around the right and back of the Walmart building. During the day it substituted as a Motor Vehicle Inspection Center.

When did this close and when was it demolished?

Anyone know anything about the Paramus drive in? It’s not listed on this site as far as I know…

In this ad from April 1964, check out the classy features playing at the Route 46. I think people really were smarter back then :) In fact all 5 drive-ins had quite a selection of good movies to choose from:
