Drive-in Airstream Resort Opening May 6th in Utah

Shooting Star Drive-In - Opening May 6, 2011

What a Destination!

The Shooting Star Drive-In is a fabulous new Airstream Resort AND a classic 1960s Drive-In Movie Theater AND an Airstream-only Park opening May 6, 2011.

Located in the heart of Southern Utah's red rock canyon country, the resort borders the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument and is just a short drive from Bryce Canyon National Park. The Escalante River flows along the resort and a few miles downstream are the world-reknowned Slot Canyons.

Airstreams Fit for a Star

Each Airstream is decorated to resemble the trailer of a Hollywood Movie Star while they were shooting on location. Imagine staying in Marilyn Monroe's Airstream while she was shooting "Some Like It Hot" or Humphrey Bogart's Airstream in Casablanca.

Each Airstream features a private bathroom, a fully-equipped kitchen and queen beds with luxurious sheets, down pillows and comforter, fluffy towels and bath products that will probably end up in your suitcase.

Relax on your own private deck and drink in the views from your Adirondack chairs while dinner sizzles on your propane barbecue grill.

Enjoy a New Movie Every Night!

Hop into one of our classic convertibles from the '50s and '60s parked in the Shooting Star Drive-In and enjoy the sunset. Then sit back for the evening's entertainment of cartoons, serials and the Feature Attraction. Visit the ConcessionAir Snack Bar for tasty pizzas, popcorn with real butter, shakes, malts and all of your favorite movie treats.
Specialties

Resort Accommodations, Spectacular Location, Hiking, Canyoneering & Exploring, Big Fun!

Sounds like a nice resort, but is there camping there?

Just tried to submit a message. No joy. Looks like a neat place, if only for 18 of us at a time. Would like to go in October, on the way to or from the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta.

I wonder what the rules of admission are, MH's allowed? Only aluminum ones? How about the LY/Legacy's (the dreaded fiberglass), etc? (Notice the avatar)

We're booked to stay there duing the first week of June. We'll be coming back from a rt. 66 trip so we thought we'd like to check it out. We'll most likely spend the days hiking and then kicking back at the drive in for the evening.
The owner said he just came back with Audrey Hepburn's Airstream while she was shooting Breakfast at Tiffany's, so I take it that all the Airstreams decorated after the stars where actually the Airstream they used while on a movie location. He has 18 sites for Airstreams only. 9 with full hookups and 9 with power and water. We don't usually go for hookups but this just sounded like a great sidebar to our trip for a few days. I love drive ins and hope to be able to check out a few of the Airstreams he refurbished.

This could be just the place to go from Area 33 to the FCU rally!

Without trying to look or sounds like 2Air....

This topic was mentioned a few times previously. Try post 14 in http://www.airforums.com/forums/f42/...tml#post974359 where pacerized talks about plans to stay there.

Another thread introducing the Shooting star can be seen at New Airstream Resort to Open in May.

I emailed some questions and did hear back. Was told it really wasn't a place for kids and we should not stay there with our almost 7 year old.

I'll drive by their entrance sign en route to inexpensive, beautiful, and "all welcome" camping in the Park or on BLM land. These "members only" places make my skin crawl.

My wife talked to the owner about their pet policy and pets are welcome. Read every post here twice and went to their website. How did you determine that this is a "members only" park?

Now, now---someone has to be the King of Threads.

Looks like a very, very cool place.

Such memories a drive-in theatre would evoke.........
