When it’s time for a break, you’ll want to plan a refreshing getaway with friends or family to a resort town like no other. The town of Telluride offers amazing trails and slopes without the worry of long lines and crowds for the winter sports enthusiast. When the snow melts, Telluride is a great place for hiking, paragliding, camping – and fun movies everyone will love – while on a well-deserved break.
Palm Arts has brought classic cinema to the residents and guests of Telluride with the Palm Classic Cinema Series. There is a set of movies shown throughout each quarter of the year. There have been dozens of movies shown since the festival’s beginning in 2018. Each quarter’s movies are connected by a central theme, from eras like the 60s to holidays like Halloween and Christmas.
Each series has a theme and focuses on movies from a specific year or era. While last year’s event was canceled, the 2019 event featured movies from 1969. Films like True Grit starring John Wayne and accompanied other popular 1969 flicks. Fun fact: True Grit took place in the towns of Ouray and Ridgway, and the courtroom scenes were filmed at the Ouray County Courthouse. The movies are screened in one of the local schools with theater quality screens and sound. Shows are free, with a donation to the Palm Arts Programming Fund appreciated.
Much like a traditional movie theater, there are concessions available for you to enjoy throughout the movie. You’ll be able to enjoy movie snacks and drinks without the worry of carting a cooler or bag to the location.
While the film festival celebrates movies and film, the Palm Arts organization brings live performances of nationally touring companies of musicians, dancers, and more to the town of Telluride. These touring companies often make stops at larger venues in major cities, but the organization in Telluride is committed to bringing the culture and entertainment previously only seen in the larger cities around Colorado right to the heart of Telluride at an affordable rate.
