The drive-in theatre celebrates its 80 year anniversary this year. The first ever drive-in theatre was opened in New Jersey on June 6th, 1933 by Richard Hollingshead. He created a unique outdoor cinematic experience which, by the late ’50s, had grown to more than 4,000 drive-in theatres. However, today it is a much different story with only 357 drive-ins operating in America. Although there are not many drive-ins left, people are still continuing to enjoy watching movies outdoors in the few remaining ones. We take a look at the history of the drive-in and celebrate its incredible 80 year journey.
