Movies will be Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights at 8:30 p.m., beginning June 22, with start times subject to change. The drive-in accommodates up to 45 cars as well as separate outdoor seating.

New this year, Blue Starlite Drive-In has partnered with Minturn’s summer concert series, combining live music followed by a popular Hollywood music-themed movie, such as “Footloose.”

This year’s lineup features classic films including “Pulp Fiction,” “The Shining” and “Back to the Future” alongside family favorites “The Princess Bride,” “Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Arc” and “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.”

Mischief Managed

The summer also includes a special “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” and “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” double feature with a pop-up candy shop by Fuzziwigs Candy Factory. For the ultimate Harry Potter fans, there will also be a specially crafted butter beer.

The Blue Starlite Drive-In provides an outdoor movie experience in the Rocky Mountains with its classic style movie concession stand.

Films are shown on a 30-foot pop-up screen.

Other food options include Blue Starlite’s signature campfire-roasted s’mores and Northside Coffee & Kitchen “drive-in dougnuts.”
