Where was the first drive-in movie?

The first drive-in movie opened on a 40-acre parking lot in Camden, New Jersey, on June 6, 1933.

The creation of New Jersey entrepreneurs Richard M. Hollinshead, Jr., and Willis Smith started a nationwide craze.

During its peak, in 1958, there were over 4,000 drive-ins across America.

As of 1992, there were fewer than 1,000 drive-ins in operation, none of them in their state of origin.
