The closest thing Film On the Rocks will get to Shakespeare in the Park, 10 Things I Hate About You comes from the height of late 90s teen rom-com. A gem of high school romance and angst, 10 Things I Hate About You features all the classic tropes: a new heartthrob at school, the cute underdog pining away for the girl, song and dance numbers, a blowout out house party, and of course prom! With a stellar cast featuring the late Heath Ledger, who much like James Dean was taken too soon in his prime, 10 Things I Hate About You is the feel-good summer flick you can’t miss.
Winner of the Film On the Rocks Wes Anderson poll. The Grand Budapest Hotel finds many of the auteur’s closest collaborators (including Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, Edward Norton and Tilda Swinton) filling out his patented ensemble casting.
At long last Heathers makes its Red Rocks debut just in time for the film’s 30th anniversary. An 80s teen rom-com with more bite than your typical John Hughes flick, Heathers launched the careers of Winona Ryder and Christian Slater.

One of the greatest adventure stories of all time, The Goonies returns to Film on the Rocks for a special evening of childhood wonderment and 80s Spielbergian nostalgia. In a sense, The Goonies is a forebearer to Speilberg’s latest pop-culture bonanza, Ready Player One.

To say Black Panther is 2018’s runaway success is an understatement. The film is as much of a movement than another entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Black Panther is a shining example of the role movies can play in our lives. It inspires children, empowers the marginalized, all while being one hell of an entertaining thrill ride.
