Vintage style drive-in to open in Central El Paso


EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) — El Pasoans can go back in time with a unique, vintage-style drive-in.

The Blue Moon Drive-In, located at 3019 1/2 Gateway Blvd. West next to Monteleone’s Ristorante, is set to open on Saturday. People can expect to enjoy a blast from the past with vintage movies and dinner options too.

The drive-in will also have a cash-only concession stand filled with popcorn, candy, pickles, bottled beer and more.

Owner Gary Monteleone said the Blue Moon Drive-In is geared to families and adults to experience a night filled with timeless films while having some fun, “Our films are set just like the original back in the vintage time drive-in. So you have some previews, the dancing hot dogs and all that stuff. Then we go into cartoons, then to present future presentations and then we go into the movie.”

Saturday’s opening day feature is sci-fi thriller, “This Island Earth,” which is already sold out. Gates open at 8 p.m. and the movie will start at 9 p.m.

Monteleone said the drive-in plans to feature movies from the ’60s and/or earlier every Saturday.

The next movie announcement will be made on the Blue Moon Drive-In’s Facebook page on Friday. Tickets are $15, which includes dinner options such as homemade hamburgers, hot dogs or a slice of pizza.
