You can hear the barking of the dog days of summer as we move through August, and fans of Adult Swim — the Cartoon Network’s popular late-night block of edgier animated fare — have a big date to mark on their calendars: On September 10, the Adult Swim Drive-In is coming to the classic 88 Drive-In for a night of free fun.

Adult Swim, which has been basic cable's top network with millennials for over a decade, has brought the world such animated grownup greats as Aqua Teen Hunger Force, The Venture Brothers, Robot Chicken, Rick and Morty and The Boondocks. It was also one of the first gateways for fascinating anime from Japan — including Cowboy Bebop, Attack on Titan and Ghost in the Shell.  Now it's taking its programming on the road to over ten cities, including Denver.

On September 10, the 88 Drive-In will be awash with Adult Swim fans enjoying games, trivia and free popcorn, along with other typical concession snacks (free vouchers for food trucks will be handed out to earlybirds). But the star of the show will be a giant projected program of pilot sneak peeks and unaired episodes, as well as more special content, all airing on the giant built-in screen of the 88, one of the last drive-ins left in Colorado. (Inflatable screens will be used at most of Adult Swim’s other stops.)
