88 Drive-in: Denver's Last Remaining Original Drive-In Theatre

Pop-up drive-in movies made a brief comeback in 2020 during lockdown for their distinct ability to socially distance and entertain customers simultaneously, but there is one that has been going strong and delighting film-goers in the Denver area since 1972: the 88 Drive-in Theatre. Round up some friends, support this local business, and celebrate the special history and nostalgia of the 88.

Open rain or shine seven days a week, the 88 proves that stellar customer service and top-notch operations are what it takes to keep a classic business going in the modern world. Known for its huge screen and state of the art digital projector, the 88 keeps its fans coming back year after year (and decade after decade) with smart parking and good eats. Cars at the drive-in are organized in the lot by height to optimize the viewing experience, while the historic snack bar, featuring a full menu of goodies, is always open for hungry patrons.

The 88 Drive-in is located at 8780 Rosemary Street in Commerce City, Colorado. Tickets are $10 per person, whether customers choose to stay for one, two, or all three of the nightly movie showings. Children under the age of 12 are always free of cost. Tickets are sold each evening at the box office beginning at 7:00pm. The 88 does not sell group packages or advance tickets at this time.

Films are updated weekly, as allowed by the film companies, and guests can expect to see at least one family-friendly movie in the line-up. Though the box office opens early, showtime generally starts around 9pm, or when it is dark enough outside for movies to be seen clearly.
