1) Delsea Drive-In Theatre

The Delsea Drive-In Theater has a unique and rich history that stems back to 1949 when it was first built. Located in Vineland, NJ, it is the only drive-in movie theatre in the entire state and one of the only ones left in the Tri-State area. Their efforts to combine the nostalgia of the drive-in movie theatre with modern technologies makes Delsea Drive-In Theatre the perfect place for affordable family fun for all ages. The drive-in theatre provides a truly unique experience where families and friends come together for affordable entertainment and fun. Unlike sit-in movie theatres, drive-in tickets are sold by screen, not individual movies. Enjoy a double feature and sometimes a triple feature -all for the price of one! Delsea Drive-In plays the most popular in-theatre movies on each of their screens.
