The drive-in movie theater is a dying institution, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still roll up and enjoy a double feature on a warm summer night. Now you just leave the car at home and pedal your way to Blake Street Tavern’s Bike-In Movies.
“This is great for all the walkers and the bikers,” says Shelley Armand, the Tavern’s general manager. “You don’t have to go very far, and you can have a couple of beers.”
Bring a lawn chair and prepare yourself for one of the finest double bills ever conceived as Blake Street presents the classics Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz back-to-back on its 26-foot-wide screen. Shaun’s a zombie-movie parody/love letter, while Hot Fuzz offers a similar treatment of the action-movie genre; both go down easy with a couple of fine beers. Plus it’s a cheap date: The $5 suggested donation won’t damage your beer budget much. You can even kick in a little extra if you need to impress your date, since the funds support the Denver Film Society's excellent Young Filmmakers Workshops.
