Drive-In Movie Theater Fun Facts
- Camden, New Jersey is the home of the first drive-in theater. Opened in 1933, shut down in 1936, and...was moved to a new location.
- The second drive-in, not counting the first one opening twice, is in Pennsylvania. Opened in 1934 and STILL HASN'T CLOSED!
- The most popular name for currently operating drive-in theaters is 'Starlite Drive-in'. There are 10 in the US with that name (that includes different spellings).
- There's a drive-in in Dearborn, Michigan that has space for almost 3,000 cars!
