This Thursday, September 12th marks the kick-off for the annual New Belgium Brewing Bike-in Cinema. During this event hundreds of people gather on Thursday evenings with their blankets and lawn chairs in hand to enjoy cult-classic movies and beer on the brewery’s front lawn at 500 Linden Street. This end-of-summer tradition is a local Fort Collins favorite and not to be missed! Admission is $2 and all beer proceeds benefit Fort Collins non-profit Wolverine Farm Press–publisher of literary & arts magazine Matter Journal and quarterly newspaper Matterhorn, among others. The bike-in cinema line up this year includes Tremors (Sept 12th), Karate Kid (Sept 19th), Shut Up and Play the Hits (Sept 26th), and Step Brothers (Oct 3rd). Movies start at dusk and end well after dark, so don’t forget your bike light. Enjoy!
