The first patent for the Drive-In Theater was issued on May 16, 1933. With an investment of $30,000,  opened the first drive-in on Tuesday June 6, 1933 in Camden, New Jersey. The price of admission was 25 cents for the car and 25 cents per person.

On June 3, 1948, the first theater for cars and small planes. Ed Brown's Drive-In and Fly-In of Asbury Park, New Jersey had the capacity for 500 cars and 25 airplanes. An airfield was placed next to the drive-in and planes would taxi to the last row of the theater. When the movies were over, Brown provided a tow for the planes to be brought back to the airfield.



If you notice, there isn't any speakers mounted on poles next to the cars. The design did not include the in-car speaker system we know today. The inventor contacted a company by the name of RCA Victor to provide the sound system, called "Directional Sound." Three main speakers were mounted next to the screen that provided sound. The sound quality was not good for cars in the rear of the theater.

Benny. I was joking. One of the guys in our car club owns the Judy Drive-In in Mt Sterling, KY. He pretty much gives me run of the place when I'm there.
