Honk! Honk! When we think of going to the movies, we often forget about the good ol’-fashioned drive-in. Mostly because they no longer exist. Luckily, the Denver metro area has one left, 88 Drive-In Theatre at 8780 Rosemary St. in Commerce City. (Did you know they’ve been showing flicks for more than 40 years?)
And it not only offers a long-forgotten, unique movie-going experience, but great value, too. In 2015, they upgraded to a state-of-the-art digital projector — all on a 40′ by 70′ screen!
Tickets are just $9 per person — with children under 12 admitted for FREE. (That’s 11 and under, for clarification.) Admission includes all movies, usually a triple-feature. (They guarantee at least two current Hollywood hits.) The first feature starts at approximately 8:20 p.m. For a triple-feature, that makes each flick just $3 — definitely blockbuster savings!
The movie line-up changes every few weeks, so check back often. Click here for the current line-up.
Plus, they offer a “Concessions Special” Monday through Thursday — get two FREE drinks (16-oz.) with the purchase of a pizza for $11.
Times have changed, as they no longer use speakers with the dangling wire. You must have a working FM car stereo or portable radio in order to hear the films. (Note: Radio apps do not work because they don’t stream the sound through the Internet.)

Outside of Denver? There is also the Holiday Twin Drive-In in Fort Collins, which also offers a great deal on tickets.
