Free Day at the Movies

Free tickets may be obtained at the Sie FilmCenter box office on April 11th

The Denver Film Society will host a Free Day on April 11 as a thank you to the community for the outpouring of support received since relocating to its permanent home on Colfax. Doors open at 1 p.m. and films scheduled that day at the Sie FilmCenter theaters will be free while ticket supplies last.

The lineup for the day includes three regularly scheduled feature films and other special presentations to be announced.

After decades of operation on the Auraria Campus, DFS moved to the East Colfax location in late 2010. In 2012, thanks to a $2.5 million gift from the Anna and John J. Sie Foundation, the Denver Film Society was able to complete the purchase of the building and, for the first time in its 35-year history, secure a permanent home for its year-round programming. The purchase of the venue was completed October 15, 2012 and at that time, the Denver FilmCenter Colfax was renamed the SIE FilmCenter.

“Our move to this vibrant arts and cultural hub on East Colfax was a game-changer for the Denver Film Society,” said executive director Tom Botelho. “A large group of community supporters provided leadership every step of the way and the neighborhoods surrounding our new home have welcomed our cultural presence. As a thank you to all of those businesses and individual film lovers who have shown their support for us, we want to say thank you by offering this free day of film.”
