My mom took me to see this at the drive-in when it first opened. It was either the Union Drive-In on Route 22 in Union, NJ, or the Amboys Drive-In off Route 9 in Perth Amboy, NJ. The 2nd feature was either "Burnt Offerings" or "The Sentinel."Yes, there was.
There is something so awesome about these 70's horror flicks. Devil's Rain, Salem's Lot, Mephisto Waltz--they seem to have paid close attention to backstory and character depth.Maybe this is me just being bitter about all these nonsense horror/gore flicks of today. I dunno, everytime I buy one of these movies I was too young to see the 1st time around, I'm almost always pleasantly surpised at the creativity and genuine good story telling.
I used to work there!!
No. You worked for GlamBoys Drive-In. Totally different movie rotation
That's not the giant one that's been completely desolate for years right at the foot of the bridge is it?Right across the river from the HESS refinary?
Actually, I worked at Amboy Cinemas AFTER they switched to a Multi-Plex (post closure of the Drive-In version).... which is like saying you swam in the Playboy Mansion's pool AFTER they tore it down and made a water treatment plant out of it. When it was a Drive-In, they showed R-rated pictures there and if we were out past dark and driving home on the Driscoll Bridge when I was a grade-schooler, we would always look at the movie screens hoping to see a giant boob. It happened a couple times. We would talk about it for weeks after. Golden Days.
Dude, we are TOO much alike!! I saw my first boob at the Drive-in!! My mom, my 2 brothers and myself were watching "Food Of The Gods" through the WINDSHIELD, while dad was watching some terrific R-rated Drive-In SCHLOCK in the REARVIEW MIRROR playing on the screen behind us. I saw him staring at the rearview mirror and looked back to see what he was looking at, and BAM........30 foot tall breasts!! I've been a boob man ever since!!

Yup, that was probably the greatest thing about that drive-in. How many hundreds of thousands of pre-teens drove over that bridge, saw those giant melons, and suddenly realized, "Hey, I guess I really am a heterosexual! Now, how do I get rid of...THIS...before we get home?!"
