Colorado was the backdrop for over 500 movies since 1898. Whether it was for early silent films, Westerns and ski movies, or Stan Brackhage’s famous works of avant-garde art cinema, Hollywood came to Colorado to set the scene. View original movie posters and footage of more than 100 years of Colorado films set in areas such as Golden, Morrison, Cañon City and throughout the high country. This exhibit will also be supplemented with material highlighting Boulder's own movie history including the Boulder International Film Festival, The Shoot Out 24 Hour Filmmaking Festival and materials from The Cove, Catch and Release, The Glenn Miller Story and the most recently filmed, The Mind’s Eye.
Listen to interviews about the exhibit on KGNU and Colorado Matters.
Exhibit made possible by the Aurora History Museum.
