Delsea Drive-In Movie Theatre
"Nice night for a drive-in!"
As New Jersey's only drive-in movie theatre, we're happy to provide a truly unique experience, where families and friends can come together and enjoy an affordable evening full of fun & entertainment!
History of the Delsea Drive-In Movie Theatre
The Delsea Drive-In was built in 1949, closed in 1987, and reopened in 2004. Located in Vineland, New Jersey, it is New Jersey's only drive-in movie theatre. It is less than a one hour drive from Atlantic City, Philadelphia, and Delaware. Combining the nostalgia of the drive-in movie theatre with modern technologies and healthier food choices, the Delsea Drive-In offers affordable family fun for all ages. The number of drive-ins has fallen from over four thousand to less than four hundred over the past few decades, largely in part to increasing real estate values and the popularity of the fast food industry. The Concession Stand is where the drive-in covers operating expenses. In either your own drive-in experiences or wanting to create drive-in memories for your children or grandchildren remember one thing, "If you eat here, we'll be here."
History of the Drive-In Movie Theatre
On June 6, 1933, the first drive-in movie theatre was opened by Richard Hollingshead Jr. in Pennsauken, New Jersey. The admission cost was 25 cents per car and 25 cents per person.
