Denver Diaries: 88 Drive-In Theatre

So, it's summer in Colorado but it's also a global pandemic. How do you get out of the house, safely, and do something fun? The answer is the 88 Drive-In in Commerce City — north Denver, not far from the Shops at Northfield. It's totally classic — a dirt lot with a old-school snack stand and a massive screen. For just $9 you can see three movies starting at 8:30pm. While the movies don't start screening until that time, I highly recommend getting there early as we arrived at around 7:50pm and the lot was almost full. They label the parking areas by the size of your vehicle so your view shouldn't be obstructed. The snack bar dishes up various delights (think pizza, hotdogs, burgers, etc.) and we opted for the medium popcorn, because, why not? We also brought pillows and blankets, put the seats down and created our own oasis in the fresh Colorado air. Everything about the experience feels nostalgic and kind of like you wandered into the set of Grease. Would y'all go? — xoxo darling, Hayden
