Thank you to the Greeley Tribune for posting an article on NoCo's latest attraction today.
The Loveland Drive-In, a popup theater event, is set to host a movie series kicking off the weekend of June 5-7 at the Outlets at Loveland, 5661 McWhinney Blvd.
Participants can choose from three different show times — 9 a.m., 5 p.m. or 8:30 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Movies shown at 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. are family friendly and rated G or PG. Movies shown at 8:30 p.m. are rated PG-13. New movies will be shown each week.
Movies will be shown on a large LED wall that is often used in event centers such as Fiddler’s Green Amphitheater and outdoor festivals.
Unlike video projection, the LED wall is capable of competing with the sun, thus allowing for multiple showings throughout the day and evening.
Audio will be broadcast through a radio station in your car or on a portable radio.
While attendees can bring their own food, drinks and snacks, there will be food trucks and vendors onsite. Liquor is not permitted at the event.
Restrooms will be available onsite with lines being regulated. Guests must wear masks when visiting restroom facilities.
Organizers ask that all pets be left at home and shows will go on rain or shine.
Vehicles will be parked according to height in a checkerboard fashion so that views aren’t blocked. Busses, campers, semi-trucks and other non-traditional vehicles are not allowed at the event.
Guests may sit outside their vehicles as long as they maintain social distancing recommendations of 6 feet from other guests. Masks are required for anyone over the age of 2 years sitting outside their vehicle.
Audience members are asked to follow all state and local guidelines regarding COVID-19 and remain in their vehicles during the show.
Tickets for the shows are $20 per vehicle and go up for sale online the Wednesday prior to the show date.
In addition to offering a fun and safe entertainment option for the entire family, the event is a fundraiser for the Thompson Education Foundation. Donations are encouraged and appreciated.

Let's enjoy the outdoors together safely!
