America's Best Outdoor Movie Theaters

Mother Nature created this open-air cinema and outdoor concert hall within an 868-acre park of pines and prairie—and conveniently just 17 minutes from downtown Denver. Two 300-foot sandstone monoliths flank the seating area and create terrific acoustics. On summer nights, the Denver Film Society puts on comedies such as Ghostbusters, The Princess Bride, and The Hangover, with local Colorado bands warming up the crowd before the feature presentation ($10).
