One of the few remaining drive ins. Great spot right in town. Snack bar gets busy, but they have a fleet of people to get your food.

This family owned drive-in theatre is the best, probably why they have been in continual business for over 65 years. You will not find a cleaner concession stand anywhere. The hamburgers, deep fried hotdogs and fresh hand-cut French fries cannot be beat! When visiting Montrose...More

Take a trip back in time when you enter the star theater. A bag of popcorn, a soda, and pillows in the back of the truck - takes me back to childhood.

Had to wait to get in but worth it. How much fun is this on a family vacation. A real piece of history which is a must.

Going to the Star drive-in is one of my family's favorite local things to do. Prices are reasonable (kids [under 12, I think] get in free!) the concessions are great and the movie always a double feature!

Awesome! Bring lawn chairs and blankets, it was so nice. Very inexpensive, I took my three nieces and nephews and they were all free. Paid $8 for all of us. Great night out.

My grandsons loved the drive-in. We ate our meal at the snack bar. We watched the 4th of July fireworks from our parked car. This was a rare treat. The weather was perfect...no mosquitoes.
