Catch 8 ‘Must-See’ Movies for Only $5 in Colorado for Summer of 2023
For a total of $40 this summer in Loveland, you could be seeing some of the greatest movies going back as far as 100 years. A great opportunity to expose friends and family to films they may not have seen, especially not on the big screen.
All but one of these will be happening on a Friday, helping you get into the weekend with a highly-acclaimed film. The one that is not on a Friday will be a part of Colorado's Juneteenth Celebration; with another highly-acclaimed movie about Black History, culture, and fashion.
If you're looking for a fun night out in Loveland, Downtown Loveland's Rialto Theater has a great lineup of movies planned for their "Flashback Fridays" in the summer of 2023. Adventure, fantasy, comedy, inspiration; some of the most highly-regarded movies ever released.
When you see this list, it's not crazy to say that you want to see them all; they're all great and they're all only $5. While they're all not "family-friendly," you do have to admire the Rialto's choosing of each of them. It would be fun to see what kind of crowd each of the showings draw.
You can make any of these a "Date Night," thought they're not all suitable for a family outing. You can get Downtown early for some food at one of the great restaurants, like The Black Steer. After you see a $5, you can still hang out in Downtown, whether it be for a sweet snack a Mary's Mountain Cookies, or a cocktail at say, Pourhouse.
