The first film in this year's Chipotle-sponsored Sustainable Film Series at the Denver Botanic Gardens, 1007 York Street, is screening tonight at 6 p.m. Through the fall, the series will feature movies about food, eats from Chipotle, and thought-provoking panel discussions.
Tonight's screening: Truck Farm, the story of how Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis, award-winning filmmakers and longtime friends, planted a mini-farm in the bed of a 1986 Dodge pickup truck and toured the country.
Admission is a suggested donation of $5 to help support educational programming at the Gardens. For more information, call 720-865-3500 or visit the website.
