(now performing weekly at Crossroads Theater, an arts center at 26th Avenue and Washington Street in Denver's Five Points neighborhood every Saturday at midnight with Colorado's Elusive Ingredient)
Possibly the longest running film in the history of Denver, the The Rocky Horror Picture Show is the answer to many a "Sweet Transvestite" dream as well as being a cult addiction to a discriminating subculture of film afficionados. Since the 1980s, RHPS and its local theatrical performers have changed homes many times and simply refuse to die. The combined show played including the live floor show by Denver's Dynamic Tension at Landmark's Ogden Theater until the Ogden art house closed down for several years in 1989. Then the showing with floor actors was happening at Landmark's Esquire Theater for over a decade. In 2001 June we received a report that a new Esquire manager brutally purged the unholy sacrilege "based on her experience with a cast in a different state." Colorado Arts Net contacted Landmark's city manager David Kimball, who informed us the reason was simply "irregular attendance" and a problem with storing a large number of props used by the cast. The weekly RoHoPicShow event was temporarily exiled to Buckingham Mall Four Theatres in Aurora. Then the gig was moved to Tiffany Plaza, Movies Six (on East Hampden in Denver). In November, 2003 we got a tip they are performing at Starz FilmCenter at the Tivoli on the Auraria Campus. In February, 2005, the show moved to Oriental Theater. And most recently to Crossroads Theater in 2007.

Durango Film Festival
- paraphrased from email rec'd from Jo Swanson 2001Au27Mo.
Durango Independent Film Festival <DurangoFilm.org> - "Features, documentaries and short films screened."
web site excerpts: "The community of Durango has presented a film festival since 2001, when the Durango Film Festival (DFF) held its first event. When DFF became inactive in 2005, staff and volunteers from that festival wanted to continue the presence of a community film festival. Within a few months they regrouped to organize The Durango Independent Film Festival (DIFF), and registered with the State of Colorado as a new nonprofit corporation on August 24, 2005.
DIFF launched its inaugural film festival March 1-5, 2006. Our vision for our nonprofit expanded during our post-festival retreat, and the Board of Directors amended the name of the organization to Durango Film Institute, d/b/a The Durango Independent Film Festival to more fully reflect our updated mission statement and our new activities as a year-round film organization.
Our main event will continue to be the film festival held every year the first week of March."
