There’s Only One Remaining Drive-In Theater In All Of New Jersey And You Need To Visit

Did you know that New Jersey was home to the first ever drive-in theater? On June 6th, 1933, Park-In Theater opened up in Camden. Popular right from the start, the peak era of the drive-in theater was from the late 1950s to the early 1960s. During that time, there were over 4,000 drive-in theaters in the United States. New Jersey was home to several, including the Route 35 Drive-In in Hazlet, which shuttered its metaphorical doors in 1991. Theater after theater closed as video cassettes grew in popularity and now, only one remains. Lucky for us, it’s lovely!

Visit on August 5th for their annual classic car show. For more New Jersey nostalgia, check out some of these iconic Garden State businesses that have closed their doors over the years.
