TRUTH !!

The drive-in theater was patented in Camden, New Jersey by chemical company
magnate Richard M. Hollingshead, Jr., whose family owned and operated the
R.M. Hollingshead Corporation chemical plant in Camden. In 1932,
Hollingshead conducted outdoor theater tests in his driveway at 212 Thomas
Avenue in Riverton. After nailing a screen to trees in his backyard, he set
a 1928 Kodak projector on the hood of his car and put a radio behind the
screen, testing different sound levels with his car windows down and up.
Blocks under vehicles in the driveway enabled him to determine the size and
spacing of ramps so all automobiles could have a clear view of the screen.
Hollingshead applied for a patent of his invention on August 6, 1932, and he
was given U.S. Patent 1,909,537 on May 16, 1933.
Hollingshead's drive-in opened in New Jersey June 6, 1933, on Admiral Wilson
Boulevard in Pennsauken Township,.
