Red Rocks is one of the best venues for a concert that I’ve ever been to. You certainly can’t beat the view and the acoustics are amazing. However, every summer, they pick a select number of movies to show and I thought it’d be fun to take Matt to one. I was really hoping to make the Top Gun showing, but unfortunately, that didn’t work with our schedule. But, while Felicia was in California, they were having a showing of The Mighty Ducks, so Matt and I took advantage of it. He’d never seen the movie, so that made it even better. I think he was a little unsure of it, being a hockey movie and all, but I reassured him that it was a genuinely funny and enjoyable movie.
We packed some snacks and got to the venue pretty early, so we were able to get some really good seats. They started the evening off with a bunch of performances from the School of Rock, which for the most part was entertaining, and when it finally got dark, they started the movie. The place was pretty much full, and the whole experience was a lot of fun, especially when you had people shouting out famous quotes and pretty much everyone in the place launching into a “DUCKS! DUCKS! DUCKS!” chant. Matt had a lot of fun and really liked the movie, so much so that he came home and immediately watched again the next day to fill in some of the gaps he missed. If you ever have the chance to a catch a movie at Red Rocks, I highly recommend it. It was a great time!
