The Star Drive-In carries some local lore as the oldest drive-in theater being owned by the original family for over 60 years. The Star Drive-In was built in 1949 and opened the gates on April 19, 1950, with the showing of “Younger Brothers.” At that time, The Star Drive-In was located in the country on Rural Route 2. The Star Drive-In Theater is one of the last two on the Western Slope of Colorado. Come and “See the STARS under the stars at THE STAR.”

The Fox Theater building of 1929 is of the “Exotic Revival” style, and designed by Dick Dickson. The theater opened on October 31, 1929 with several unique aspects of construction and use. The Fox was created for the new format of film, the “talkie” and not the silent pictures that were being phased out at the time. The building was the first in Montrose to have it’s own self contained telephone system, which improved the operation of the theater for management and viewers. The dome and minaret convey a Middle Eastern feel to the building, similar to the Egyptian Theater in Delta.
