Park-in Theatres aka “Drive-Ins” the brainchild of Richard Hollingshead. He loved movies and worked in the automobile industry – so it made all the sense in the world when his vision for a park-in theatre opened in 1933 and (YES) in CAMDEN NEW JERSEY! The popularity of the drive-in spiked after World War II and reached its heyday in the late 50s to mid-60s, with 5,000 theaters across the country. Drive-ins became an icon of America! Unfortunately this is a memory for the Baby Boomers and maybe Generation X – GOOD NEWS there is still ONE drive-in theatre left in NJ!
Yes its called Delsea Drive-in located in Vineland, NJ! GONE are the days for .25 admission – but can you really put a price on a family night at the drive-in theatre and supporting a little piece of New Jersey History… well only you can answer that question. #NewJerseyFirsts
