Twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park, Isla Nublar now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond. After 10 years of operation and visitor rates declining, in order to fulfill a corporate mandate, a new attraction is created to re-spark visitors' interest, which backfires horribly.
I’ve had a couple of wonderful encounters with memorable folks this week. They warmed my heart and I want to share them with you.
First Michelle Kennedy from Rocky Mountain High School stopped by to write a story and take some pictures for the high school newspaper. We have a few students from Rocky that work for us; Tony Martinez, Mac Thompson, Michael Fanning and Roman Ortiz. Michelle wrote a nice article about them and their work at the drive-in in her school newspaper. While I was giving her a tour of our building, we stepped out on the roof so she could take a few photos there. I pointed out a mom and her two little boys, dressed in their footsie jammies all ready for the movie. That made us both say “ahhh”. Seeing these … Read More »
Starting May 10th our movie line-up will be Iron Man 3 with the co-hit Olympus Has Fallen on Screen 1 and on Screen 2: Pain & Gain with the co-hit Oblivion. We’re open 7 nights a week now so avoid the crowds and join us during the week. A couple of our “regulars” stopped by last night and said how nice it was to come when you could spread out a little bit.
Hope you’re joining us on Tuesday, May 14th for our second retro night of the season. The Screen 2 line-up for that night is Risky Business and Top Gun.

We’ve waited a long time to be able to play movies other than the ones we booked that are current releases. We plan to have one more retro night in May. Tuesday, May 14th will be the second play date and we have not confirmed the movies yet, but we will announce them here as soon as we know.
There will be something for everyone come August when we go into full swing with our retro film offerings. Until then, will all the big summer movies being released we’re unable to get permission from the film companies to “cut them out” of … Read More »
“Wait 15 minutes and the weather will change!” It must be spring time in the Rockies. Wintery weather one day and 60 degrees the next. We plan to open again this weekend on Friday, April 26 and Saturday, April 27. This will be our last weekend only week until mid-August. Our employees are happy and so are we!
I just started a Pinterest board dedicated to Drive-Ins. Replacing 35 mm film with digital has made me nostalgic, I guess. Everyone around here is looking forward to seeing the lot filled with folks who are out to enjoy a nice evening with their friends and family under the stars.

We had some great press this past week in the Reporter Herald thanks to Jessica Benes. The story was picked … Read More »
