  1. When do the drive ins usually open for the season? And why isn’t the Movie Manor not listed as a Colorado Drive in?

    • The Movie Manor is the nifty motel facing Screen 1 of the Star Drive-In of Monte Vista. (You can also watch Screen 2 from some rooms if you twist around a little.) Opening Day varies widely, but it’s typically in the range of late March to early May. The Mesa’s Opening Day for 2013 is March 22, for example.

    • In the 1955-56 Theatre Catalog, for Colorado Springs it listed the Arcadia (sic), the 8th Street, the Northside, and the Starlite. (When I visited the Aircadia in 1994, across East Platte Avenue from the Citadel Mall, it was the last one left in the Springs.) Another web site also mentions the Vista Vu, Sky Vu, and Falcon. Somewhere in all those names, you’ll probably find the five you’re looking for.

    • Vista Vu in Security, Sky Vu on 21st Street, the 8th Street on 8th Street, the Aircadia on Platte, the Falcon up somewhere around Barnes, and I have heard stories of a Drive-in on North Cascade that is now a trailer park but don’t know anything about it personally.
