Just received word from our friends over at Theaters and Arenas that the Denver Film Society is planning some sort of special Michael Jackson tribute tonight after the Rouge's set, which kicks off at 6:45, and just before the screening of Jaws at dusk. Despite our dogged persistence, our peeps simply refuse to dish on the details, but since this weekly summer series is called Film on the Rocks, we're gonna go out on a limb and posit that the tribute, whatever form it takes, will be, uh, cinematic. Color us geniuses. Or no?
