MINTURN — Put the car in park, tune the radio, sit back and relax this summer with drive-in movies coming to Little Beach Park.
Blue Starlite Urban Drive-In, based in Austin, Texas, and with another location in Miami, is announcing the country’s highest-elevation drive-in is coming to Minturn.
The 30-foot pop-up screen will illuminate the valley floor on summer nights with concession stands, food from local businesses and more at the movie nights beginning July 6.
“We are thrilled to be bringing the Blue Starlite experience to Colorado for the first time,” said owner Josh Frank in a press release. “Minturn is the perfect location to create a one-of-a-kind drive-in experience.”
Little Beach Park has capacity for about 40 cars, and there is also a lawn area for people to watch from and listen via the drive-in movie speakers. Cost ranges from $8 to $30, with family packages and other deals available.
Movies will be shown nightly at 8:30 with start times subject to change. For more information and most up-to-date listings, visit http://www.bluestarlitedrivein.com.
