MORRISON, Colo. (CBS4) – The schedule is out for the annual summer film series at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, and fans of The Hunger Games have reason for excitement.
The futuristic thriller will play to what will surely be a packed crowd under the stars at the Morrison venue on July 15. The movie was a big hit at theaters last spring, and CBS4 Critic at Large Greg Moody gave the movie a green light.
“I loved the book ‘The Hunger Games.’ It took me into a world of imagination that could too easily exist. It was exciting — chilling — and thought provoking. And for the most part, the movie matches that point for point,” Moody said during his review of the film.
The other movies playing under the stars, along with the bands playing that night, include:

Film on the Rocks is a joint production of the Denver Film Society and Denver Arts & Venues. Tickets cost $12, but they are more expensive if you buy them on the night of the movie at the Red Rocks Box Office.
