This popular summer tradition isn’t necessarily “cheap”, but it sure is lots of fun. (Actually, 16 bucks for a concert, comedian and flick isn’t so bad, right?) The Denver Film Society and Denver Arts & Venues are hosting their 20th season of Film on the Rocks at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre. (Could you ask for a better backdrop?)
The 2019 season includes 7 movies throughout the summer, including cult-classics, pop culture standards and past fan-favorites. Performances by local bands and comedians precede each film.
Here’s the line-up:
May 10 – Titanic
May 28 – Bohemian Rhapsody
June 3 – Ghostbusters (1984)
June 17 – Mean Girls
July 1 – Top Gun
August 5 – The Mighty Ducks
August 19 – Free Solo
Gates open 6:30 p.m., entertainment starts at 7 p.m. and the movies start at dusk (around 8:30 p.m.)
General admission tickets are $16 each. You can purchase tickets online. (Note, a $3.25 convenience fees applies, so the final total is $19.25.) Parking is FREE.
Tickets are also available at the Denver Coliseum box office from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., every Saturday. All tickets sold at the Coliseum box office require a Flash Seats account along with a valid ID matching the account profile.
