Kurosawa

It takes a big man to admit the fact that he hasn’t seen one single movie from a director as famous as Akira Kurosawa. It’s especially embarrassing if you’re a mildly successful movie blogger such as myself. But it was true.

“Movie Houses of Worship” is a regular feature spotlighting our favorite movie theaters around the world, those that are like temples of cinema catering to the most religious-like film geeks. This week, writer/producer Jason Cangialosi highlights one of his favorite theaters. His comments are those quoted. If you’d like to suggest or submit a place you regularly worship at the altar of cinema, please email our weekend editor. Sie FilmCenter Location: 2510 East Colfax, Denver, CO Opened: “The original home for the Denver Film Society’s theater was opened in 2002 with the support of Starz, and served as a temple of cinema tucked away on Denver’s Auraria Campus. In 2010, just in time for the Starz Denver Film Festival, the Society relocated its theatrical location to what became known as the Denver Film Center/Colfax. It was a stylish upgrade into a state of the art theater in the Lowenstein Cultureplex – a bastion of independent culture anchored by the theater, Tattered Cover Book Store, Twist & Shout Records and the Denver Art Gallery. During the 2012 Starz Denver Film Festival, the Anna and John J. Sie Foundation donated $2.5 million, enabling the Denver Film Society to own the building of their new home.” No. of screens: 3 Current first-run titles: John Dies at the End; Beasts of the Southern Wild; Oscar-Nominated Documentary Shorts
