Last Picture Show At the Starz FilmCenter

Twenty-six years ago, in 1985, the Denver Film Society moved its festival screenings to the then-new AMC Tivoli multiplex. In 2001, when AMC vacated the facility, the 12-screen cinémathèque became the permanent year-round home of the DFS and the Starz Denver Film Festival. Last year, in November, the DFS moved to its state-of-the-art, year-round home, the Denver FilmCenter/Colfax.

At 7pm, on Sunday, November 13, the last day of the 2011 Starz Denver Film Festival, we’ll say goodbye to the Starz FilmCenter at the Tivoli with two screenings: The Big Chill, which we showed in 1985 as part of a tribute to Jeff Goldblum, and 13 Conversations About One Thing, starring Jill Sprecher, John Turturro, and Matthew McConaughey—the first film to screen at the Starz FilmCenter on April 2, 2001.

The Tivoli, old, tattered, and outdated, has served this organization well for more than two decades. Join us for the last picture show at the end of an era—and for a blow-out farewell party following the screenings.
