  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!

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.
