The ten best movie events in Denver in August

With summer fading away, the studios are releasing the last blockbusters and many moviegoers are dreading the pre-Oscar lull. Fear not, cinephiles. Denver's movie scene is vibrant. This month you can huddle up and catch a doc at Sports Authority Field, drink a beer and watch a horror flick at Crash 45 or sit back in the comfort of the Alamo Drafthouse and have dinner and drinks watching 1970s New York street gangs clobber each other to death. Whether you love classics, horror, sci-fi, sports or art films, August has plenty for you.
