A look back at Bergen County drive-in theaters.

Demarest Farms announced that on June 11 they would be Bergen County’s newest drive-in theater, news that comes less than a week after Gov. Phil Murphy made in car gatherings legal again.

They shared the information on social media and said that more would be available soon.

New Jersey is allowing any “recreational and entertainment event” that follow the order’s social distancing guidelines. If any of these car gatherings cost money, online or telephone ordering options that don’t require contact must be made available if possible. People organizing the gathering that aren’t in vehicles must wear face coverings.

If cars are closer than 6 feet apart, windows, doors, moon roofs and other openings must remain closed unless people in the car are in immediate danger, Murphy said. People must open their vehicles if a law enforcement officer, public official or private security guard tells them to do so, the order says, and people must stay in the vehicle they arrived in.

The state’s only actual drive-in theater, Delsea Drive-In located in Vineland, also announced that they would be reopening for Memorial Day weekend and other companies have started to make plans to bring movies to places like Madison and Franklin Lakes.

Ramsey Theatre is also in the process of putting together a pop-up drive-in plan. They will soon be announcing an upcoming schedule and location. More information will be posted on social media as it is available.
