The movies for the 2012 Film on the Rocks summer lineup at Red Rocks Amphitheatre -- many of them picked by the people, for the people -- were announced Friday night, and don't blame the Denver FilmCenter if you don't like The Notebook.
"It wasn't just because this seems to be the year of Ryan Gosling," says Karla Rodriguez, FOTW audience development and social media manager. "It's because The Notebook has been one of our top five most-requested films consistently since it came out. From crowd surveys to Facebook polls, this is what the people want."
But they'll get plenty more, too. In response to the lineup, Leanne says:
Waynes World is gonna be epic, love Anchorman and the Notebook, already saw office space at FOTR, everything else is just eh..so stoked though!! I love FOTR!!
The season starts June 4; The Notebook is set for June 25. What films are you looking forward to at Film on the Rocks? What films would you like to see booked there? Post your thoughts below, or comment on the original post here.
