PARAMOUNT — A drive-in movie theater is returning to the Paramount Swap Meet with a grand opening set for this spring, officials announced today.

The drive-in will feature double features on two 75-ft. digital projection screens with FM radio sound. Plans include a snack bar and restrooms.

Admission will be $9 per adult, $3 for children ages 5-8. Kids 5 and under are free.

All vehicles will be welcome, including trucks and RVs, officials said. Moviegoers will also be encouraged to bring portable radios and enjoy the movies from outside their vehicles.

“We hope to replicate the feeling of the original theatre, and make a night out at the movies more of an interactive experience,” said Beau Bianchi, general partner of Modern Development Company.

No opening date was set, but officials said the drive-in theater will open in spring 2014.

Paramount Swap Meet is at 7900 All America City Way, off Somerset Boulevard in Paramount.
