Boxoffice had an interesting report in its March 2, 1959, issue. The new owner of the Starlight, William More, said he planned to move the drive-in across town, screen tower and all. The town’s rapid growth had made the Starlight’s original property too valuable to use as a drive-in. I don’t know if the plans were carried out or not, and I haven’t been able to find any later references to it in Boxoffice.

The Chief Drive-In was built by Westland Theatres and was opened in 1951 or 1952.

  1. Approx. address for the Chief Drive-in was 2870 North Avenue. Now Colorado West Mental Health.

  2. Above address is incorrect. Approx. address for the Starlight Drive-in was 2881 North Avenue. Now the parking lot for that’s right…WALMART!
