Vista Vue Drive-In, located across from Security, Colo on old highway 85-87; had It’s “Gala Reopening” on April 13, 1960 The opening night movies were to feature “The Hunters” and “Sierra Baron”, which I saw, however, slept thru the second. Interesting fact, I believe, was that the theater screen was acclaimed the largest this side of the Mississippi. If any one interested can recall the details of the Marquee as well as the site itself, please let me know. I also discovered that the ticket price at the time was; Adults 65 cents and kids were free.

Above address is incorrect. Approx. address for this drive-in was 5746 U.S. 87, Colorado Springs, CO 80911.

This address will track fairly well on Google Earth: 3750 N Cascade Ave, Colorado Springs, CO 80907. Drive-In was slightly south of this address in the Shangri La Mobile Home Park on B St. Couldn’t get and exact address.

Peacheyeball gave the address for the wrong drive-in, and changed the address to the location of North Side Drive-In. There were seven drive-ins in Colorada Springs, so I guess it is easy to get them mixed up.

Jwmovies had the correct address for Vista-Vue Drive-In. I have it here:

US 87 at Center Valley Dr
Fountain, CO 80817
