Star Drive-in, Monte Vista CO, Nineties

Since: 1964

Address: 2830 Highway 160 West, Monte Vista, Colordado ID: 8784


The Star Drive-in opened in 1964 with room for 200 cars. It also had a small Motel behind the drive-in, which enabled guests to see the film from their room.

Later Best Western took over and it's now also known as the Best Western Movie Manor Motor Inn. In 2003 an extra screen was added for an other 200 cars. The screens are open from May through September. Back of the card:


"Kelloff's Best Western Movie Manor, the world's only movie motel. A unique concept in accomodations. Rooms face a giant outdoor movie screen so you can enjoy watching the latest movies, complete with sound, without leaving the comfort of your room. Kelloff's Restaurant, next to the motel, serves breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. While you enjoy your meal, view two spectecular mountain ranges - the San Juans and Sangre de Cristos."
