'Film on the Rocks' is back this summer with a packed lineup

Moviegoers can catch drive-in and amphitheatre movies at Red Rocks this summer.

MORRISON, Colo. — Colorado's most-picturesque cinema experience is back this summer.

Film on the Rocks Summer Series will return in 2021 with a schedule that combines the drive-in program introduced last summer and a limited run of in-amphitheatre shows, organizers announced Wednesday.

Beginning Memorial Day weekend, films will be screened at the drive-in for four weeks. In addition to bringing back the drive-in experience of 2020, Film on the Rocks will move back into the amphitheatre for movies on July 12, July 19 and August 2.

"After an incredibly successful drive-in season at Red Rocks last year, which included sellout shows and rave reviews from our guests, we’re thrilled to be able to offer both the drive-in and in amphitheatre Film on the Rocks experience for this summer tradition," said Denver Film CEO James Mejia. "From our partners at Arts & Venues, to our sponsors and dedicated film-loving fan base, we’re incredibly grateful for the support and excited to launch the Film on the Rocks season this summer."

“We’re very excited to offer our audience the best of both worlds for this year’s Film on the Rocks series,” said Denver Film Director of Marketing and Partnerships Kevin Smith. “Our audiences loved having an opportunity to get out in a convenient, safe and beautiful environment last summer to enjoy a film, and we know that everyone is eager to get back into the amphitheatre and take in the full scope of this iconic setting.”

“The reinvention of Film on the Rocks as a drive-in last year was a highlight for our guests. We’re excited to bring back the concept, and provide a great line-up of films in the shadow of Red Rocks,” said Venue Manager Tad Bowman. “As we reopen the amphitheatre this summer, having Film on the Rocks back in venue for three shows will be the perfect finale to a great Film on the Rocks season.”
