Film on the Rocks is rolling back to Red Rocks. Here’s what you can watch and when.

A Denver summer mainstay is back this year. Film on the Rocks, the uber-popular film series run by Denver Film and Denver Arts and Venues, will return to Red Rocks Memorial Day weekend.

Film on the Rocks kicks off May 26 with “Dirty Dancing,” followed by a screening of “Jaws” on May 27. Films through at least July will be screened in the parking lot, drive-in style, as they were last year to comply with COVID-19 restrictions. But from July 12 through the end of the season, screenings will return to the amphitheater.

Tickets for Film on the Rocks go on sale April 16 at 10 a.m. at Denver Film and Red Rock’s websites. The $59.50 price of admission per car includes popcorn, soda and two boxes of candy. The amphitheater shows cost $16 a person or $32 for VIP seating and will include either music or comedy pre-show.
