Presented by Pepsi, The 2016 edition of Film on the Rocks (FOTR) includes ten events throughout the summer. Each film is preceded by a live concert and local comedian, courtesy of Comedy Works.
The 17th season of Film on the Rocks will kick off on Monday, May 23 with a GREASE sing-a-long. One week later, on Memorial Day (May 30), the season will continue with fan favorite, THE BIG LEBOWSKI. The third show of the season will take place on the actual 75th anniversary of the dedication of Red Rocks Amphitheatre in 1941. The Denver Film Society and Denver Arts & Venues are thrilled to recreate the entire original experience to mark the occasion with an official re-dedication ceremony and a screening of the 1941 classic, CITIZEN KANE.
This year marks the 30th anniversary of another Film on the Rocks fan favorite, FERRIS BUELLER’S DAY OFF (June 20). THE SANDLOT will screen on July 11, for the first time in the history of the series. In tribute to the late David Bowie, LABYRINTH will screen on July 25 with a tribute concert from School of Rock. Celebrating its record breaking box office run, and possibly the most foul-mouthed super hero of all time, DEADPOOL will screen August 23.
