After two years of drive-in screenings and a limited run of in-amphitheatre events in 2021, the 2022 Film on the Rocks will be a fully in-amphitheatre experience. The season kicks off Monday, June 13 with a presentation of the exhilarating superhero adventure Thor: Ragnarok and continues through Monday, August 15 with a presentation of the six-time Academy Award-winning sci-fi epic Dune. In between, the schedule delivers The Sandlot; The Greatest Showman; and 2022 Academy Award-winner for Best Documentary, Summer of Soul (… Or, When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised).

“We’re incredibly grateful to our audiences who fully embraced the drive-in concept for Film on the Rocks over these past two seasons,” said Denver Film CEO, Kevin Smith. “However, there is nothing more special than the in-amphitheatre experience that Red Rocks delivers and we know that this year’s lineup, packed with some of the most popular films of all time, as well as some new film and documentary additions, is going to create a very memorable summer under the stars.”

  Gates open at 6:30 p.m. with musical guests taking the stage at 7 p.m., followed by the film presentation at 8:30 p.m. The full lineup of performers will be announced in the coming weeks.
