It's Time For A Refreshing And Tasty Snack!

East 70 Drive-In Theater on the east end of Colfax Avenue, out by the Fitzsimmons Army Hospital in Aurora, Colorado.

When I was ten years old my family lived in an apartment building near this drive-in and we could watch the movies from the apartment house's upper walkways. One day I had the brilliant idea of sneaking into the theater to turn up all the car speakers in the back two rows so we could hear the movie while we watched. My friends and I did not know people worked at the theater in the daytime so we got caught within minutes of sneaking in and thrown out. Only the memory remains as the East 70 was torn down in the late 1990s.
