The Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design’s Visiting Artist, Scholar and Designer Program Series is already known for bringing incisive artists and cultural celebrities to the area to lecture on challenging themes each school year. For the 2017-18 edition, dubbed “Collapsing Time,” series director Gretchen Marie Schaefer has created the Collapsing Time Film Series, a collaboration with Alamo Drafthouse Sloan’s Lake that will serve as a laid-back companion to the lectures. The first show, a special 21-plus benefit screening of 12 Monkeys, unspools at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, September 19, at the Alamo, 4255 West Colfax Avenue, and includes Stem Ciders beverages and a vegan dinner for $45. Screenings of other favorite films with temporal twists will continue monthly through next April; admission to those is $7, or free at the door for RMCAD students, faculty, staff and alumni with a valid RMCAD ID.
