Outdoor Summer Movies
Drive-in movie theaters may have become relics of a by-gone era, but bike-in movie nights are NOT! Civic Center Conservancy is hosting a new movie series on Sunday nights in Civic Center Park. So cruise to the Park in style with a B-Cycle or ride your own, just make sure you’re settled in before it gets dark as the movie begins at dusk. Facing the City and County Building in Civic Center Park, you will enjoy the show while admiring this dramatic backdrop. Admission is free and bring a picnic basket or purchase eats from on-site gourmet food trucks. Make sure to check out Matthew Broderick in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, starting at 7:30 p.m. Sunday August 7th.
Don’t forget about some of the other Denver locations featuring outdoor movie series. The Lowry community will be ending their summer movie series in style with Speilberg’s classic E.T. Popcorn and ice cream will be available, as well as dinner items for purchase. Movie starts at 8 p.m., but get there early to catch some live music by Yo Mamas and Papas.
