The Ten Best Movie Events in Denver in October

Some say October is the month when the veil between the dead and the living vanishes. For movie lovers, this is no rare thing: We're used to the shadows of the past flickering before our eyes and yesterday's voices flooding our ears. And not just in horror films; after all, every movie -- even science fiction -- is a blast from the past.

But this October, Denver's theaters will be showing more than ghosts, guts and gore. Whether you're a foodie looking to learn about cutting-edge cooking techniques, a hip-hop fan eager to discover the creative process behind one of the greatest all-time albums, an art-film enthusiast, a nostalgic Saturday morning cartoon fiend or a blockbuster junkie, you'll find something to see in Denver's buzzing film scene. Here are our picks for the ten best movie events in October.
