Thats why Bieber and a cinematographer partner decided to make Rickys Rib Shack, a film shot entirely in Denver that truly does convey what its like to fight a fire. Because I was still on the fire department at the time, they gave us unprecedented access to everything, Bieber says. We got right into the action, into the middle of everything. So in the middle, in fact, that the cameras were damaged. We got bruised and a little bit battered, Bieber remembers.
If you missed the screening of Rickys Rib Shack on Wednesday, November 12, dont fret; it plays again on Thursday, November 13. Both shows are at the Landmark Theater in Greenwood Village, 5415 Landmark Place. Tickets are $12, which includes popcorn and soft drinks, and all proceeds benefit the Denver Fire Fighters Burn Foundation, which helps children with severe burn injuries. The film is not rated; it contains intense scenes and some adult language -- it was shot in a fire, for crying out loud -- so parents, use your judgement.
