News About This Theater

Blaker Theatre

Built around 1900, the theatre was initially a vaudville house and was located on a pier owned by Gilbet Blaker. William C. Hunt leased the theatre and then purchased it in 1925. The theatre operated for many years before combining with the Shore Theatre to become the Shore 4.

Both theatres have been demolished.

Does anyone remember which theater in Wildwood NJ had the big green screen that looked like an underwater scene with lots of fish on it? I remember it opening and closing at the start and end of the movie.

Wasn’t the Hunt, the one that was equipped for Sensurround.
I’m sure I saw Earthquake there.

And I know I saw Jaws at the Shore theater.

Those lines for “Jaws” were quite common. At a drive-in here in New Jersey, police were called to help with the traffic from cars lined up over 1 mile on the side of a two way street.
