Watch movies on top of a downtown parking garage



It's time to watch movies on the roof, people. In coordination with other organizations, the Downtown Partnership is going to start throwing movie parties on top of the Bijou-Cascade parking garage at 215 N. Cascade Ave. The new event is called Starlight Cinema.
Starlight Cinema will feature live music by local bands, food, a beer garden, and activities for the whole family, with a movie showing at dusk. The top of the Bijou and Cascade city parking garage, located at 215 N. Cascade Avenue, will be transformed each month for Starlight Cinema, with movies shown on the rooftop level. Admission for Starlight Cinema is free, and patrons should plan to bring lawn chairs and/or blankets to enjoy the show. VIP bike parking is free of charge, and car parking is available in the garage for $1.

“The concept for Starlight Cinema grew out of conversations between a variety of partners,” said Lara Garritano, Creative District Manager for Downtown Partnership, continuing, “We’re excited about the possibilities presented by using urban infrastructure for an atypical, creative use.”

“An outdoor film series in the heart of downtown is a great example of adaptive urban use,” said John Olson, Chief Instigator with Colorado Springs Urban Intervention. Olson added, “Plus, it’s a one-of-a-kind experience. Where else in town can you sit back to enjoy a classic film while watching the sun setting behind Pikes Peak and taking in a bird’s eye view of the city skyline?”
Here's the schedule. Looks like we're off to a strong start film-wise. (And please bring a DeLorean if you have one. Please?)
