Alamo Drafthouse
7301 South Santa Fe Drive, Littleton

Experience Colorado’s Rollins Pass in a way that you’ve never been able to before: through rare images and the even rarer 1925 film The White Desert, complete with live piano accompaniment by Hank Troy. Authors B. Travis and Kate Wright host this special one-day event at the Alamo Drafthouse Littleton, where you should really try the crispy buffalo cauliflower. Trust me on this.
