When the Mesa added those two screens, they bought them used from two other Colorado drive-ins that had recently down. One of them was the Lake Estes from Estes Park, and the other was the Pines from Loveland.

The first twinkling of an eye in the history of the Mesa was reported in the May 20, 1950 issue of BoxOffice:

BLENDE, COLO. – A 26-acre site on Route 50 about one mile east of here has been purchased by officials of the Westland Theatres as the site for a 1,200-car drive-in to be built and completed by May 1, 1951. Construction will not be started until crops now planted have been harvested. The circuit now operated the Chief, Colorado and Victory theatres in Pueblo and a drive-in recently completed near Colorado Springs.
