To celebrate an 85th anniversary, the traditional gift is wine. Denver’s Esquire Theatre (operated by Landmark Theatres) is marking its 85th anniversary with soda and popcorn instead.
The movie theater was built in 1927 and originally had just one screen and a balcony. Today, it still maintains its quaint feel with two screens that showcase independent and foreign language films. In honor of this milestone, moviegoers can catch a screening of The Last Picture Show (watch the trailer), a 1971 black-and-white starring Timothy Bottoms, Cybill Shepherd, Jeff Bridges, and Ellen Burstyn, on Wednesday, August 29. The film is a classic coming-of-age tale of a young football player living in a fictional small Texas town in the early ’50s. It was nominated for eight Oscars.
That's only $1 per issue!
Tickets are $5. A popcorn and soda combo is just $3 more.
