A celebration of movies, food, architecture, and art in Colorado's San Luis Valley.

One of the American West's most unique landscapes, in the headwaters of the Rio Grande River.
The magic of our property started in 1955, when the Frontier Drive-In first opened to the public. It was a hit.
Re-opened for the first time since 1985, our team has reinvented the Frontier as a Drive-Inn, welcoming overnight guests to enjoy our favorite place — the San Luis Valley. Visit us to:

Films from the present-day US-Mexico border. Screenings begin at dusk and will be preceded by a short introduction from curator and author Michael Dear at 7:30pm. Saturday night's movie, La Misma Luna (Under the Same Moon), is a public event: $10 at the door and free for children 10 and under.
Award-winning architect Ron Rael and his team at Emerging Objects are the designers behind the Frontier's first structural commission - eight open-air adobe observatories surrounding a heated soaking tub, where guests can warm up and enjoy the San Luis Valley's stunning, unobstructed night sky.
