Summer Guide Roundup: Outdoor Movies

May 26 2014, 8:30 AM

No matter how hot it gets during the day, summer nights in Colorado are a chance to cool off and relax—and what better way to do that than under a silver screen. 

Movie Night at Coors Field: Watch The Sandlot after the Colorado Rockies play the Minnesota Twins on Sunday, July 13. The movie night package includes access to the field and a complimentary blanket.

Film on the Rocks: The 15th anniversary of Fight Club (June 10) highlights this year's Red Rocks lineup, which also includes tributes to Harold Ramis with Caddyshack (June 3) and Paul Walker with The Fast and the Furious (June 24).

The Historic Elitch Theatre: Situated outside the theater that projected the western United States' first movie, these lawn viewings help raise money for the building’s renovations. Stars that will light up the screen this summer include Robert Redford, the Marx Brothers, Audrey Hepburn, and Gene Wilder.

Stapleton’s Movies on the Green: Join the hordes of families for movies like Gravity (June 27), Catching Fire (June 25), and Frozen (August 29).

88 Drive-in: This triple feature, drive-in movie theater, located in Commerce City, is wonderfully old school (you must listen to the sound through your car radio).

Summer in Skyline Park: Films are shown at dusk in the center of the 16th Street Mall. Check out Father of the Bride (July 19) or Man of Steel (August 9).

Infinity Park Monday Movie Madness: The Glendale rugby field makes room for flicks on Monday nights. Highlights include The Lego Movie (June 23), Big (July 7), and Mary Poppins (July 21).

Dive-In Movies at Elitch Gardens: Have you ever wanted to watch a movie while lounging in a wave pool? Elitch's is giving you three chances to do just that with Finding Nemo (June 27), Frozen (July 11), and Despicable Me 2 (July 25).
