There is still one operating Drive-In Movie in the State of NJ. As you can see its pretty far south.

Welcome to the Delsea Drive-In | New Jersey's Only Drive-In Theatre!

Here is a list State-By-state. PA has quite a few.
There is one about 30 miles from me, but I have not been there. It's actually fairly New.


The first time I went with a Date to a Drive-in was with my husband. It was the Sunrise Drive in , in LI. I also went to Jungle Habbit in NJ on the same date and a restaurant called Cookies.

They are all gone now.

And yes, I remember sneaking a peak at the drive in screen by the GS Parkway Bridge in Sayreville as we came home from visiting relatives. (Anyone else remember that Dutch Boy paint billboard at the bridge with the digital clock on it? )
Oh, boy, do I remember the Dutch Boy paint billboard with a clock! My parents used to take me there many times and as I got older, I used to go there with my boyfriend. We used to hit a different drive-in every weekend. lol
That boyfriend eventually became my DH. Many times we talk about going to the drive-ins and what a wonderful time we grew up in.

Can anyone tell me if the Laurelton Drive-in, which was located in Brick, NJ, had any amusement rides under their screen, such as a merry-go-round or a miniature train? This would have probably been circa 1958-possibly mid 1960s. Several northern NJ drive-ins I visited had that type of thing back in the day.
