Red Rocks Amphitheatre | Morrison, CO
Denver Film Society In conjunction with Denver Arts and Venues bring you Bohemian Rhapsody and live entertainment at Red Rocks Amphitheatre on Tuesday 28th May 2019!
Bohemian Rhapsody 2018 (PG-13 for thematic elements, suggestive material, drug content and language)
Directed By: Bryan Singer
Written By: Anthony McCarten
Stars: Rami Malek, Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee
Bohemian Rhapsody is an all sinnging all dancing celebration of Queen, the trials and tribulations of their lead singer Freddie Mercury real name Farrokh Bulsara(played by Rami Malek). How Freddie defied conventions and stereotypes to become one of the most loved and certainly well known entertainers on the planet. The film follows their meteoric rise through their near implosion as Freddie’s lifestyle spirals out of control after his split with Mary Austin(played by Lucy Boynton) and their triumphant return at the Live Aid concert where they gave arguably one of the best rock performances in the world.
Bohemian Rhapsody scored a 49 on metacritic, a certified 61% fresh from Rotten Tomatoes with an average of 85% of audience members liking it. The critics consensus is Bohemian Rhapsody hits a handful of high notes, but as an in-depth look at a beloved band, it offers more of a medley than a true greatest hits collection.
Film on the Rocks includes a performance by a local band, a comedian from our partners at Comedy Works and of course, your favorite classic films.
Film on the Rocks is a rain or shine event so it is advised to come prepared for all weather conditions.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m., bands begin playing at 7 p.m., and movies start at dusk.
“Film on the Rocks is a quintessential Denver experience. It is part of summertime.”-Steve J.

“As for Freddie Mercury, is this his real life? Is this just fantasy – not sure that really matters either. When Malek's strutting like a peacock, this movie is a decently amusing escape from reality.”-Bob Mondello NPR
