Film on the Rocks is one of the most Coloradan experiences you can have. Each summer, people head in droves to Morrison to visit the Red Rocks Amphitheatre and watch classic movies in perhaps Colorado’s most iconic setting. Many people bring a picnic dinner to eat while they enjoy the weather and pre-movie entertainment.
Films typically start around dusk, and doors open between 6:30 and 7:30 pm. This event goes on no matter the weather, so bring layers and anything else you might need if Mother Nature throws a curveball abruptly.
This summer’s Film on the Rocks will be held on select Mondays, June 12th to August 21st, 2023. Films screenings include Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Top Gun: Maverick, Mamma Mia, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.
A recent addition to the summer lineup is the holiday drive-in, where you can watch holiday-themed movies in your car. The drive-ins don’t feature pre-movie entertainment, but they do offer the vintage fun of listening to the movie on your radio and bonus movie snacks provided to each car. If you’re still hungry, you can grab something at the concession stand.
