Ten cult-classic films, including two historic anniversary presentations, presented by Pepsi

Denver Film Society and Denver Arts & Venues announced the line-up for the 2013 edition of Film on the Rocks (FOTR) at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre.  Presented by Pepsi the 14th season includes 10 events throughout the summer featuring cult-classic films, including several past Film on the Rocks fan-favorites. Each film is preceded by a live concert with bands to be announced later this week. Comedy Works' Chuck Roy returns as host of Film on the Rocks for the 10th season.

"We know that summer has truly arrived in Colorado when film fans flock to Film on the Rocks, the Front Range's annual outdoor hit summer series," said Britta Erickson, festival director for the Denver Film Society. "It's the ideal combination of music and film in one of the most beautiful settings in our state.  Nothing beats an affordable evening at Red Rocks in the summertime."

This season features a look back in time, some risky business activities, mean girls, bluesy brothers and a few games involving hunger along with princesses looking to get married.  The season kicks off on Wednesday, May 29 with BACK TO THE FUTURE, the first in the series of Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd journeys backwards and forward in time.

Two of this season's highlights will be anniversary screenings of two of the seven films in the season which have never screened at Film on the Rocks --  a 25th anniversary showing of RISKY BUSINESS(Tuesday, June 4) and a 30th anniversary screening of DIE HARD (Tuesday, July 2).  The season concludes on Tuesday, August 13 with the cult classic, ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW.

 "Peak Experience" ticket packages return again this season for the ultimate Film on the Rocksexperience.  For each show guests can choose to roll like a VIP by selecting the Party Bus VIP ticket with food, drinks and a ride to and from the show from Rackhouse Pub or the Trading Post Pre-Party VIP ticket with catering by Steuben's Food Truck. Both VIP ticket options include free food, drinks and preferred seating in the amphitheater. A "Peak Experience" kick-off to the season will take place at Rackhouse Pub on Wednesday, May 22, 2013 from 5pm to 7pm featuring a complimentary light buffet and drink specials. This event is free and open to the public.

Film on the Rocks is a collaborative production of the Denver Film Society and Denver Arts & Venues and was created to provide an affordable opportunity for the community to enjoy films and live entertainment at Red Rocks Amphitheatre. The first film screened in the program was Francis Ford Coppola's THE GODFATHER.  In 2012, more than 60,000 people attended Film on the Rocks events.
