Movie Manor Motel

Read about this place on Roadside America and finally got there on a trip in August 2017. The rooms are nice and they all have movie star names on them. You can still watch the movies from your room. In some rooms you can watch from bed, in others from chairs in front of the window. A great place to stay!

Movie Manor Motor Inn

This place was awesome, and totally unique. Not only do you get a drive-in movie from your motel room window, but if you leave your curtains open, people on the way to the snack bar get a porno. I don't like to brag, but I did a pretty good box office.

Watch Drive-In Movies from Motel Room

We're so impressed that this motel has found a niche and made it work for decades, and that the adjacent drive-in movie theater apparently thrives when most others were bulldozed years ago.

As the sun sets majestically behind the Rockies, customers at the Movie Manor Motel sit in their rooms and stare in the opposite direction -- at a pair of huge drive-in movie screens. When it gets dark the film features start rolling. Soundtrack audio and snack bar announcements are piped directly into rooms through suitably lo-fi mono speakers.

Best Western Movie Manor Motel

A drive-in movie theater, restaurant, and motel all-in-one. Most motel rooms face the Star drive-in screen with sound directly piped into the rooms. Motel patrons can actually sit in comfortable chair, in their room, and watch the drive-in movie. It's been a very popular place for over 40 years and still going strong.
