Tickets go on sale Friday, April 16 at 10 a.m. The popular summertime tradition isn’t necessarily “cheap”, but it sure makes for a memorable night of fun under the stars. The Denver Film Society and Denver Arts & Venues are hosting their 22nd season of Film on the Rocks at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre. (Could you ask for a better backdrop?) However, this year, it’s a drive-in movie theater again — with a few amphitheater screenings mixed in at the end of the season.
Film on the Rocks has been Colorado’s essential summer event for more than 20 years. Featuring live performances and movies under the stars at the iconic Red Rocks Park & Amphitheatre, the summer series combines some of the best in culture, views and summertime fun.
It’s definitely a movie experience like no other! (Aren’t we lucky we live in beautiful Colorado?)
The 2021 season includes 24 movies, including cult classics, pop culture standards and past fan-favorites — from May 26 to August 2.
Located in the Red Rocks Lower South Lot, the movies are shown on a state-of-the-art 55-foot LED screen.
