A more accurate address for this theater is 22201 US-160, Walsenburg, CO 81089. This points to the drive in itself.

Please update.

There is more than just the projection booth still standing. The frame for the marquee is still there. But more importantly is that the ticket booth is still intact.

It’s clear that the entrance road paralleled Spanish Peaks Drive on the east side of the property. While the exit road was on the west side.

If we are being picky about entrance roads in terms of addresses, then 22240 US-160, Walsenburg, CO would be even more accurate. Although whatever works is fine by me.

The 1961 aerial showed empty ground.

The 1966 topo included the Trail. So it probably opened in the early 1960s.

The 1999 aerial showed a drive-in that still looked active, but then again, it still looks decent today, 20 years later.
