The site of the Nor-West Drive-In is located on the corner of 120th Avenue and Perry Street in Broomfield. The theater was still completely intact until fairly recently (as of this posting December 25, 2007) but now the marquee, screen and ticket booth have been demolished leaving only the concession/projection booth and the ramps.
There is a church that was constructed on the northeast corner several years ago and now a medical clinic has been constructed several hundered feet west of that. In 2009, it appears the rest of the land will soon be developed and the remaining buildng demolished. This drive-in was still operating in May 1996.

I worked at this theater in 1978-1979. I was 16 years old. My dad was Asst. Mgr. I worked the ticket booth and concession stand. Sad to see it torn down now. The Mgrs was a woman named Brandy I think. She had a daughter that gave me a BJ in the ticket booth. lol true story.
The Nor-West drive-in opened on 3/22/67. I am putting together a series of books on the Denver area’s drive-ins and indoor theatres. If anyone has any questions on the subject, please feel free to contact me at and I’ll be happy to share my research with you. Thanks – Ken Mitchell
The Nor-West was still operating on May 31, 1996, when the Denver Post ran an article about the remaining active drive-ins in the area. Bill Holshue then owned the Nor-West and the 88 of Commerce City.
I’ve put together a booking history for the Nor'West drive-in, from 1967 up to 1978 so far, along with ads, photos and other information – in case anyone would like to know when a particular movie played there. I’m always happy to share my research with interested people. Take care – Ken Mitchell ()
