And now, a word from our friends at the awesome, non-profit Denver Film Society.

Their Kickstarter has 9 days to go! Either they raise enough money to go digital–or they go dark. Check out for more info.

Help out our DFS friends! Save the movies!


Our friends at the nonprofit Denver Film Society need your help! They’re raising money via Kickstarter to buy needs 4 new digital projectors to continue showing films at Film On The Rocks, SDFF, and Sie FilmCenter. They write,

By the end of 2013, the film industry will only distribute new films in a digital format (DCP). Even classic Film on the Rocks titles like THE BIG LEBOWSKI, TOP GUN and THE GOONIES have been converted to digital. The potential impact to the Denver Film Society and film-lovers throughout the region is significant. Without DCP projectors we will not be able to show these older films or any new films produced by Hollywood!
