The Tru Vu Drive-In Theatre in Delta, Colorado is a large, outdoor cinema showing double features for the price of one. Watch a movie under the stars while munching on snacks and breathing in the fresh Colorado air.
The Tru Vu Drive-In first opened its doors in 1955 with the films Canadian Pacific and Abbot and Costello’s Naughty Nineties. It had a single, large screen and could hold up to 400 cars in its lot.
Today, this outdoor cinema has not changed much from the original. The major change has been a switch to digital film and online ticketing. It has managed to retain its old-school charm and continues to delight viewers of all ages.
What to Expect
Guests arriving in large vehicles will be asked to park in the back rows, ensuring everyone has a clear view of the screen. Lawn chairs are permitted but required to stay within your car’s designated space.
The first film begins at dusk. Guests may stay for one or both features. The ticket price remains the same either way.
Sound is transmitted through your car’s FM radio. Portable radios are permitted, with a limited quantity available for rental at the snack bar. To check one out, you must have a valid photo ID.
Food and beverages are available at the concession stand before and throughout the shows, including intermission. Favorites from the menu include:
- Hot Dogs
- Ice Cream
- Soft Drinks
- Cotton Candy
- Whole Pizzas
Additional items and combo packs are available. Check the website for the full menu.
The concession stand accepts cash, debit, and credit cards. Outside food and drinks are permitted, but purchasing from the snack bar helps to support the theatre and ensures its doors stay open for future generations. Restrooms are available on site.
