Terrible news to hear the day before National Drive-In movie day!  The 88 Drive-in movie theater in Commerce City will be closing!

For almost 50 years the 88 Drive-In has offered the unique experience of people being able to pull up in their car and enjoy some of the biggest movies over the last several decades.  Its looking like the site where the drive-in is located may be re-zoned to allow an 80,000+ square foot industrial warehouse to take its place.

City officials made sure to note that it was the owners who have decided to leave the business and not the city, but it will definitely leave many people sad as one of our very last local drive-in movie theaters will be no more.
