I saw the Lion King there at the Aircadia as well in 1994! This was the last Drive-In movie I ever saw.

I visited the Aircadia in its last season (though I didn’t know it at the time). I saw The Lion King there, which proves that it didn’t shut down until the end of the 1994 season. I remember a large drive-in sloping down to the screen and run by some large theater chain. The 1988 IMPA says Westland, but I don’t think that was it.

I hated to hear that it was gone, but the way Colorado Springs was expanding, there’s no way it could have survived much longer. Now it’s my poster child for old drive-ins that became Walmarts.
