Food Policy

ALL OUTSIDE FOOD and BEVERAGES (including bottled water, coffee, etc.) are prohibited without the purchase of a Food Permit. The DELSEA DRIVE-IN depends upon its Concession Stand sales to keep its workers employed and the business running.

 Food Permit: As a courtesy for those patrons who feel it necessary to bring in their own food and/or beverages, we offer an Outside Food and Beverage Permit. The Food Permit is
$20 per vehicle for the evening in addition to your General Admission tickets and should be purchased online at the time of your General Admission ticket(s) purchase if you are electing to bring in outside food or beverage. 

The Food Permit price doubles beyond our front entry gates. Permits MUST be placed in a visible area of the dashboard so that it may easily seen by grounds personnel. The Food Permit applies to the occupants of a single vehicle. Sharing with occupants of other vehicles is not allowed without the purchase of additional food permits. 

We open our Box Office 1 1/2 to 2 hours ahead of showtime so that our patrons can purchase and enjoy their meals before the start of the movie. Arriving close to showtime is not advised.

Diabetic Medical Supplies are not considered Outside Food or Beverage:
~Glucose tablets
~Glucerna drink or similar diabetic product
~Hard candies

***Individuals with other special circumstances are asked to contact the Delsea Drive-In via email at prior to visiting.

Notify any staff member and assistance will be offered immediately.

Pet Policy

  • All pets must be on  a short leash (6' or less, no retractable leashes) at all times.
  • "Potty" rules are as follows:
  1. -No peeing on our speaker posts.

  2. -All patrons with dogs must carry either a pooper scooper, or plastic bags and pick up after the dog. Please dispose of the waste properly. See our Security for areas that we will allow you to walk your dog for "curbing". Unused parking spaces are off limits.

  • No pets are allowed in the Concession Stand or restrooms

  • Patrons with pets must insure the safety and quiet enjoyment of others attending the show, and assume all responsibility for the actions of their pet. (Ex: If your pet is aggressive or can be aggressive, you need to muzzle the pet before entry and throughout your stay. If your pet hurts someone, you have to assume liability.) 

  • We advise you to bring a bowl for water as it can get very hot during the peak of summer. Water must be obtained from the restroom or purchased from our Concession Stand. Bringing water in from elsewhere violates our Outside Food & Beverage Policy, unless you purchase a permit to allow it. 

  • Any action of the pet, or pet owner that is irresponsible, causes an injury, or a problem for the management/other patrons, will be made to leave without a refund. The pet owner will be held fully accountable and financially responsible for the actions of themselves or their pet. 

*Pet lovers and patrons, if you see any irresponsibility on the part of a pet owner, please call it to our attention IMMEDIATELY.

The following statement is intended for prospective patrons unfamiliar with the nature of a drive-in theatre:

The Delsea Drive-In Theatre is an open-air theatre and take-out, full-menu restaurant where patrons view current movies from the comfort of their own vehicles. Movies are projected onto a large, fixed screen and the audio is broadcast over the vehicle's radio. The Delsea Drive-In Theatre currently has two (2) screens and shows a minimum of a two features on each screen during regular operating days. The admission price covers one's attendance at either of the two screens. Switching between screens is not permissible without the purchase of another ticket and if space allows for the switch.

The Delsea Drive-In Theatre predominantly shows PG and PG-13 rated movies and caters to a "general" audience. "G" rated movies, although seemingly produced in lesser quantity, are shown as well.
"R" rated movies are shown periodically dependent upon prevailing viewer interest or popular demand and, whenever possible, are reserved for the second and/or third feature slots.
Due to the physical nature of a drive-in theatre with multiple screens, please note that patrons on one screen may be able to view and/or hear content on/of the other screen. Parents are advised to review the MPAA ratings and to apply discretion to the extent they feel is necessary.

We understand that the drive-in may not be suitable for everyone. The increased freedom resulting from an open-air environment can reduce the level of control some patrons may require to feel comfortable. The Delsea Drive-In Theatre has always tried to and will continue to try to maintain an atmosphere of affordable family entertainment, food, and fun. We are happy and grateful to entertain as many patrons as possible."
