Film on the Rocks has been Colorado’s essential summer event for over 20 years. In 2021, we started the season off with 21 drive-in shows throughout June and July. Then, we headed back inside of the amphitheatre to host 3 sold-out shows featuring live performances and  movies under the stars at the iconic Red Rocks Park & Amphitheatre. The summer series combines some of the best in culture, views, and cult classics. It’s a movie experience like no other.


This awareness of accessibility is the reason why, even today, Film on the Rocks tickets remain some of the most affordable on the eclectic Red Rocks calendar. Similarly, Film on the Rocks gives local artists and performers an opportunity to play on the iconic Red Rocks stage and connect with Colorado audiences.


Over the years, many beloved movies have played at Film on the Rocks, from cult classics like The Big Lebowski, to stunning international films like Spirited Away, and timeless blockbusters like Star Wars. Some of the notable local artists that have performed at Film on the Rocks are comedians Josh Blue and Nancy Norton, as well as bands like DeVotchKa and Oxeye Daisy. We also partner with the renowned School of Rock to give students an opportunity to perform on the stage once a year.

Denver Film has worked with representatives from Colorado’s Deaf and Hard of Hearing Communities over the past three years to ensure that Film on the Rocks is accessible for all attendees.
