Not really sure how one is supposed to review a drive in but hey, if you want to have a blast from the past, this is the place for it.

Roll up the driveway to the box office and buy your tickets. If you have a big car or van, expect an inspection for stow aways.

Come early to get the perfect parking spot and go spend a buck in the restaurant. The food is reasonable and surprisingly good for quick serve. The menu is also quite eclectic. I will say that the line does get backed up quickly - some better organization in the kitchen would be helpful (and good for revenue - i.e. I'd go back for more if I knew I wouldn't have to wait 15 minutes).

I grew up in the "drive-in era," and was so happy to see the Delsea Drive-In in Vineland open back up several years back. I've carried on the tradition of family fun at the drive-in with my own children. The hubby and I pack everyone into the SUV several times a year to check out a double or triple feature. They have an excellent snack bar, and you can also purchase a one-time license to bring your own food in, which we usually do. Chair rentals are available too. A great family night with not alot of cost.

Awesome for the price/double-features. Get there early when the gates open at around 6:15PM, this will give you plent of time to set up your car/truck/van the way you like and to get in line for the excellent/declicious/abundant food choices at the concession stand.
Great thing to do and at a very reasonable price considering what regular movie theatres charge for admission (to only one) movie and for concessions.

Drive-in movies sadly are hard to come by so I'm glad for this one. Nothing beats a warm (but not hot) summer night spent watching films under the stars. Recently we saw Despicable Me 2 and Monsters Univ. back to back. We also were treated to two meteors so you can't beat that. Fortunately the management had underestimated the turn-out for these two films and put them on Screen 2 in the back. This is by far the best screen as Screen 1 has a big stain line that cuts across it in the middle (been there for a year or two as it was there when we saw Deathly Hallows Part 2) and I find that very distracting. The offerings at the concession stand are vast, too vast, as a trip for a soda can take you over an hour right before the movies start. They would do well to cook some of their things ahead of time, reduce the menu and have a quick-serve counter for things that don't require a wait. Get someone in there with some experience setting up fast food processes. The women's bathroom line was very long between movies but enough time was allowed to use the facilities before the next movie starts. Bring a radio to tune in to the audio and some lawn chairs. Driving a regular sized car will get you in the front rows so your view isn't obstructed by SUVs with their rear hatches up.

This is the only drive-in theatre in New Jersey. I visit here as much as possible. It's only 9 dollars and you get to see 2, sometimes 3 movies. It's a 2 hour drive from my house which is painful, especially driving home at 3 in the morning sometimes. But I love going so I don't let the drive deter me. You tune your radio to a specific station and that's how you hear the movie! Through the speakers in your car! You don't have to worry about people sitting in front of you or being obnoxious like in regular theatres, because you are in your own car! The snack stand has EVERYTHING you could imagine, from burgers, pizza, popcorn, subs, milkshakes, perogies, spring rolls, choc covered strawberries, and anything else you could imagine! At intermission time they play old school drive in commercials. It's a fun experience. They are open from March to October, and have recently expanded from only being open the weekends to Wed-Sun. Check it out you won't be disappointed!
