A Truly American Phenomenon
The drive-in theatre experience first came to light on June 6, 1933. That was the day Mr. Richard Hollingshead, opened the first drive-in theater in Pennsauken Township, New Jersey. A few others quickly followed but the trend only truly took off with the advent of in-car speakers in the 1940s.Families still flock to our drive-ins for great entertainment at an incredible value. But when you come to a West Wind Drive-In you’ll experience more than just a great movie. You’ll experience the drive-in – a unique and historic slice of Americana.
MovieNight Cinemas – The Modern Drive-In
We were one of the first drive-in theatres to fully embrace technology with the installation of the largest digital projectors available. Now all MovieNight Drive-Ins project a crystal-clear digital image on screens so big they dwarf the ones you’ll find in a typical walk-in theatre. Even before digital projectors, we invested in new technology to beam audio straight to your car stereo. Gone are the days of dim screens and the old “squawk boxes” that hung on your car door.
There has been a major resurgence in the popularity of the Drive-in theaters over the past few years. With the introduction of super-bright digital projectors where we show all the latest releases the Drive-in has once again become the destination for folks looking for a great night out. In a culture where family time has become too rare and the price of movie tickets can break the budget, the MovieNight Cinemas surfaces to satisfy your thirst for affordable, quality, family entertainment.
