Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Cinderella Drive-In opened in 1973 with two screens and a capacity of 800 cars. It operated seasonally March through October. It had in car heaters when needed. FM radio for audio and conventional speakers were also available. This was one of the last drive-ins operating in the Denver area and closed in 2007. It played first run double bills.

I’m sorry to report that as of February 24th, 2007 the Cinderella Twin Drive-In has been completely demolished with the sole exception of the marquee. This may be gone by now too as it looked as though that was next on the developer’s hit list due to the positioning of the construction equipment. A source that I do not know very well stated that as of February 16th, 2007 the two screens were still standing although the concession/projection building and ticket booth were gone so I am assuming the demolition occurred between these dates. And the projection/concession building were still standing but half demolished in early February…I saw them myself.
I cannot believe that in a neighborhood full of blighted sites and buildings that would actually be benefited by redevelopment that they decided to go after a classic drive-in that made good money for its owners, was well kept and was enjoyed by many Coloradoans.

Will keep you posed when the marquee finally comes down.

As of today the marquee is still there, along with “Closed for the season” posted on it. A bit of graffiti also welcomes viewers of the sign. The buildings are getting awfully close to it but yet it still stands. Interesting.

That looks like one high Marquee!
