Delsea Drive-In, a taste of nostalgia with a tasty menu to boot

Drive-In movie theatres may be a relic of the past, but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t fun!  The Delsea Drive-In theatre located in Millville, is a steal! With the price of movies these days it’s hard to be able to go out and see the latest blockbuster without breaking the budget.  But the Delsea Drive-In doesn’t feature just one, but two movies for only $9.  If you have never been to a Drive-In movie theatre I would highly recommend this place, especially if you are in the area.  The Delsea Drive-In is the only drive in movie theatre left in New Jersey.  Many of the people I talked to have enjoyed it for years.  It closed down briefly but then re-opened in 2004.

The Menu features more than just typical popcorn and sodas.  You can get a 1/3 lb. sirloin burger, an eggplant parmesan sandwich, chicken teriyaki with edamame.  The website recommends itself as a place to take the family.  They typically don’t show movies that are rated R.  The Delsea Drive-In is located in Vineland, New Jersey.  My only complaint is that the   If you are planning on going there, using Mapquest or by GPS DO NOT GET OFF AT EXIT 32.  Instead proceed to exit 29.  Jersey highways can get pretty confusing, but once you get the hang of them it’s a piece of cake.


The Daress Theatre

Any fans of the theater here?  There are several in the state of New Jersey and I would like to highlight this one in particular.  The Daress Theatre houses plenty of stage shows.  Many of them have been reviewed very well.  A lot of children’s theatre has been shown here.  Plays such as “The Wizard of Oz” and “Heidi” have been performed.  The theater not only presents well known shows, but it also presents new original plays.  One of the musicals of note “Jack the Ripper”, based on the 1913 novel “The Lodger” has gained attention across the state for it’s operatic qualities.

Daress Theatre

The Daress is also screens independent films that you would not see otherwise.  The Daress is sort of an underground place that has been around for a long time.  The theater opened up its doors in 1919 and has been showing movies and plays ever since.  It celebrates its heritage by showing classic movies for generations to come.  They usually hold a classic horror film fest around Halloween, but they had to cancel because of Super Storm Sandy.
