from March until October.
This is a nostalgic trip back to another era that has great appeal to families looking for an unusual, entertaining attraction at an affordable price. It's New Jersey's only operational Drive-in theatre.
New Jersey has a unique history associated with drive-in theatres. They were invented here with the first drive-in theatre opened by Richard Hollingshead Jr. in Pennsauken, New Jersey, on June 6, 1933. The Delsea Drive-In was first opened in 1949, closed in 1987, and later purchased, updated, and reopened in 2004 by Dr. John DeLeonardis.
The main screen remained from the original property with a second screen added along with modernization of the snack bar and the projection equipment, replacing the original 35mm movie projector with a modern digital system.
Every evening features at least two films, sometimes three, for the price of one ticket per guest. The concession stand offers an an upgraded menu with a large variety of popular items. Because of the low cost of ticket sales, it's the food sales that cover the majority of the expenses needed to run the operration.
