“A family tradition - have loved it for 20 years!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2012

Can't say enough - it's a drive-in! It's something all generations can enjoy! Hope it never disappears like they have everywhere else in the world! We go every summer when we are in town visiting family.

“Can't say it any better than another reviewer--a blast from the past done right!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2011

This business has been owned and operated by a local family for over 50 years, and they still make their french fries the old fashioned way, coming in every day to fresh cut pounds and pounds of potatoes. That alone makes it worth a visit at least once a summer! Drive-in movies are an increasingly rare piece of Americana, so IMO that's another reason to take the kids. And they've updated their sound system so that you can tune in the audio on your own car stereo.

“A Blast from the Past Done Right”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2011

In an age when drive inn theaters are a thing of the past, The Star is a going concern and tons of fun. What could be better than watching a double feature under a canopy of Colorado stars? The concession stand is top rate and has REAL FOOD, not just greasy popcorn and candy like the megaplexes do. Their burgers and fries are the best in town and the popcorn, if that's what you're after, is as fabulous as it gets.

Don't miss this!
