Bohemian Rhapsody

May 28, 2019
A collaborative show featuring the DENVER GAY MEN’S CHORUS & DENVER WOMEN’S CHORUS followed by SPIRETTES

We Will Rock You! The surprise break-out hit from last year returns. But you haven’t seen the Live Aid reenactment until you’ve seen it at Red Rocks. Rami Malek won the Oscar for his turn as Freddie Mercury in this kinetic rock-n-roll biopic. You might not ever see Queen at Red Rocks, but this is the next best thing.

Ghostbusters

Performances by RAMAKHANDRA and YaSi

35 years ago a ragtag team of scientists (Harold Ramis, Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson) promised to save New York City – and the world – from supernatural destruction in the form of a possessed Sigourney Weaver and Rick Moranis. All these years later GHOSTBUSTERS remains one of Hollywood’s greatest comedy-action hits. Who YOU gonna call?

Mean Girls

June 17, 2019
Performances by TYTO ALBA and BRIFFAUT

15th Anniversary screening! Time to go back to North Shore High and break into your favorite clique, The Plastics. One of the most quoted and beloved teenage films from the mid-aughts, Mean Girls set the bar for every girl group flick to follow. Written by Tina Fey and featuring breakout roles from Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams and Amanda Seyfried, Mean Girls is an all time comedic classic.

Top Gun

Performances by OXEYE DAISY and BROTHERS OF BRASS

A perennial Film On the Rocks favorite, nothing celebrates the birth of America like the need for speed. Come fly around with Maverick, Goose, and Iceman before next year’s sequel Top Gun: Maverick. Who knows? An impromptu shirtless volleyball game might just happen.

Winner of Best Documentary Feature at the Academy Awards, Free Solo follows climber Alex Honnold as he attempts to be the first person to ever free solo El Capitan.
