With one month left of Summer and Fall coming quickly around the corner, the opportune time for the perfect drive-in experience is approaching.
There are only a handful of drive-ins left in our beautiful state of Colorado therefore you may need to make a day trip out of it. However, there is no better excuse to clean up the vehicle, go for a ride, turn it into a fort, and indulge in some drive-in favorites.
Here are the last standing Colorado drive-ins you can enjoy this season with your friends and family.

- Best Western Movie Manor: Monte Vista, CO
We couldn’t pass up adding this one to the list! At Best Western Movie Manor the only way to view the films is to stay at the inn. This provides you with two options or styles of viewing; if you receive a room that faces the big screen you can watch directly from your bed with a massive window or if you room does not have a direct view, you can pull your car around to the big screen to watch. This drive-in still offers a classic snack bar for everyone to enjoy - even if you’re staying in bed!

With most of these drive-ins in Colorado turning around 70 years old and only ~300 left in the entire United States. It is our job as Coloradans to support them and keep the classic way of viewing films around!
