Closed by Commonwealth in 1986, another operator may have reopened it later.

A June 2023 Google Street View shows the projection booth/concession stand was removed. Only the foundation remains along with the ramps and foundation of the screen.

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 ()

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.

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

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.
