Another of the dozens of drive-ins that were once all over New Jersey. The Loew’s 35 Drive-In was opened in around 1956, with John Wayne in “The Searchers” and Jack Carson in “Magnificent Roughnecks”. The location was sometimes given as Keyport. It was one of the first of Loew’s outdoor theatres.
It had a capacity for 1,400 cars on its 22 acre site. The drive-in had an all-steel reflective screen which was 125 feet wide and 52 feet high. The large concession building had an outdoor patio with tables & seats. There was a circus-themed childrens playground which contained a miniature train, a merry-go-round, swings and slides. The drive-in was open in winter, as it provided in-car heaters.
The multiplex Cinemark Hazlet 12 was built on the site of this drive-in.
