Concerts, comedy shows and, yes, movies. Drive-in theaters around Colorado, whether they’re established or pop-up style, are opening their doors to all kinds of entertainment.
Here’s a look at what’s on tap this weekend at drive-in theaters around the state.
Note: The Mesa Drive-In in Pueblo has still not opened for the season due to COVID-19 concerns.
Good Company Restaurant and Bar
The eatery and bar, 7625 N. Union Blvd., will once again invite patrons to another free drive-in at 8:30 p.m. Friday, this time with a showing of “Uncle Buck.” Good Company had a hand in kicking off the trend of pop-up drive-in movies in Colorado Springs by hosting a showing of “Grease” in May. Know that you don’t have to order food or drinks while enjoying the show. And the film’s audio will run through an FM transmitter.
Garth Brooks’ drive-in concert
If you snagged tickets, your Saturday night will be spent with Garth Brooks. The country superstar will put on a one-night-only concert on Saturday that will air on-screen at 300 drive-in movie theaters across the country. The concert is slated to stream at drive-in theaters across the state including the Tennyson Arts Pop-Up Drive-In in Denver, the Comanche Drive-In in Buena Vista, the Tru Vu Drive-in in Delta, the Star Drive-In in Montrose and an outdoor area in downtown Denver.
