Movies Line Up for Leadville Off-Season
While it’s been years since Leadville had an operating movie house, new technology and film lovers have been doing their best to continue to bring some interesting shows to the Cloud City. Here are some upcoming films that will be shown locally – mark the calendar.
Tomorrow, Tuesday, April 7 there will be a free showing of the film TRASHED starting at 7 p.m. at Leadville Outdoors in downtown Leadville. This environmental documentary film features Jeremy Irons and was selected for Cannes where it had a premiere in 2012. Since then it has been seen in over 40 countries and by hundreds of communities around the world. So far it has screened at over 46 film festivals, been nominated 13 times and won 8 awards. This showing is sponsored by the Cloud City Conservation Center. Snacks will be provided, but bring your own beverage. Seating is limited. Leadville Outdoors is located at 222 Harrison Avenue.
Movie Trailer for: TRASHED
The Tabor Saga on the Big Screen
Horace. Augusta. Baby Doe. These three names create their own triangle of fame, fortune, betrayal, and ruin. While today that might make for a great reality show, back in 1932 someone thought it would fair well as a feature film. This month you’ll have a couple of chances to see if the film lives up to the reality.
The Friends of the Lake County Public Library will be showing the 1932 movie “Silver Dollar” on two nights April 14 & 16. This movie was loosely based on David Karshner’s book “Silver Dollar: The Story of the Tabors.” Doors open at 6 p.m. with the program starting at 6:30 p.m. The showing will be held in the library’s AMAX room. Admission is free but seating is limited to 75 people.
Local Filmaker Debuts Project May 3
And last, but certainly not least, will be the film “Pace Pass”. Be sure to put a big red circle around Saturday, May 3 for this film being presented by the Leadville Arts Coalition (LAC).
This show was produced by Leadville film maker Karen Rinehart and much of the cast and crew are also from The Cloud City. The film addresses how to “tenaciously embrace the best worst option.” Its being shown as part of the LAC’s “Meet The artist” series. Tickets are limited so they encourage advance purchase (contact: email@example.com). The film will be shown in the Longyear Room at the National Mining Convention Center.
