News About This Theater

Delsea Drive-In

This was a 700 car drive-in operated by the Budco chain when it opened April 29, 1949 with Sabu in “Drums” (The Drum) & Peggy Lee in “Midnite Serenade”. Budco was later bought by AMC. The theatre was closed in July 1987. The drive-in was reopened July 23, 2004 and a second screen was added in 2008. In 2015 it is the only drive-in theatre operating in the state of New Jersey.

Considering how few Drive-Ins there are left, the owner appears to hold the cards.
I will say, though, that the rule has never been enforced when I have gone.

This opened on April 29th, 1949. Its grand opening ad can be found in the photo section for this drive-in.

hdtv267, I think this whole virus thing is being taken too far. Between the mask thing and cars parked 6 feet apart, and only so may people in the restroom at a time, its ridiculous. Just my opinion.

Markp: I agree. Parking standards (that have been around for years) dictate parking spaces to be 9 feet wide by 18 feet long. And Walmarts have fully open/unrestricted restrooms.Drive-ins should be allowed to operate normally and at full capacity.

hdtv267, oh I never intended to imply you set the policies. I know you just passing on info. I just think this entire thing is way overblown. I am a stagehand, and I may not get back to work till next year. Even the 35MM movies I run may not restart till the fall. Im with you. I wish things would open quickly.

Now that they are becoming popular again, I would love to see someone tear down the old Amboys Multiplex in Sayreville and put up a 3 screen drive in. 2 screens by the river and one near the old circle. It was an old drive in before becoming the multiplex. Great location and no homes around. Strike while the iron is hot.
