I grew up going to Drive-In's Theaters in the late 70s. It's a special experience to watch a movie on a large outdoor screen, underneath the stars with a cool breeze at your back. Unfortunately, during the 80's most single and double screen Drive-In theaters were replaced by the 10 + screen multiplex theaters. When it comes to value you... More

This facility is a mess. The lot is a disaster, with undercarriage eating holes and divots. The screens are far too small for the field AND feature prominent rust marks in the viewing area. Food is over priced and low quality. Rules are enforced randomly and haphazardly, particularly those regarding smoking. Add in an ownership that has demonstrated an unbelievable... More

I will not return. I can't believe they humiliated a diabetic child like that. They want you to buy their concessions, but when I stood in line I waited almost an hour and missed most of the movie! The theater is more expensive, but at least I'll be able to enjoy what I paid for. The owner is despicable.

the pediatrician owner of this theater should not be treating children with disabilities as he clearly decides making a dime on concessions at the theater is more important than the life of a child. I suggest nobody go to this theater until it has a new owner and allows disabled to drive in. Also, tell parents not to take their... More

I understand your policy about not bringing in outside food and drinks, however, when someone is diabetic and their sugar drops low, they are not always able to walk to a concession stand and purchase snacks!! You should be ashamed of yourself...after all, you are a doctor!!

Went to have a good time. Lucky diabetic supply were in grandma's pocketbook. They all but strip search you and your car just so you don't bring anything in. Then they walk around always looking. Things must be bad in the dr business.

I recently went to see Into The Storm and Let's Be cops at the Delsea Drive-In Theatre and it was the worst movie experiences I have ever had. The picture wasdark and out of focus and the sound through my radio was horrible, The owner, Dr. John Deleonardis, should be ashamed of himself for accepting money for such an inferior... More

Owner has publicly stated that those with Type 1 diabetes are not welcome because they carry small quantities of sugared items to treat hypoglycemic emergencies. He recently refused entrance to a Type 1 teen for this reason. He stated they should stay away because he doesn't want to risk loss to concession sales. Ironic that the owner is a pediatrician...

his drive-in is in Vineland NJ and owned by a pediatrician. This doctor clearly has no clue that folks with type I diabetes (which he callously calls an "affliction") are educated to ALWAYS carry food with them ... it is a matter of life and death. Wouldn't have him for my child's doctor and would certainly not go to his... More

I'm grateful for the Delsea Driv-in theater. It's the only one left in NJ. My teenage kids get to experience the fun of the drive-in, and it is fun....with some negatives. I'd love to give the Delsea a glowing review and not point out its flaws, because I'm glad they're in business and within driving distance of my home. This... More
