The new Denver Mart Drive-In Theater in southwest Adams County will have its slightly delayed grand opening at 7:30 p.m. June 12, giving construction crews time to put the final touches on the 300,000-square-foot theater space in the pavilion parking lot.
"The rain and the weather that we have endured here in Denver lately was definitely a setback for our construction timeline," said Misty Flachman, an event manager at the Denver Mart. "Our screen is up, our projection system is going through its fine-tuning stages, and there were just a few other details with our parking arrangement that we're finalizing."
Once the pavement dries out, new parking lot stripes for the designated theater space will go down. There are about 130 fewer parking spots than originally projected at the beginning of this year. Because of that, Flachman said it will be very important for movie-goers to buy their tickets online before the shows.
