Calling all cinemagoers – The Lyric’s grand opening is finally here! At 6 p.m. on October 26, staff and friends of The Lyric will parade through Old Town Square with a marching band to the front doors of their new building for a night of high energy and fresh beginnings. Upon arrival, expect live bands in Area 52, a DJ spinning tunes in Space, and live video art in The Tiki Lounge. This event is free and will conclude with a Black Dynamite screening at 11:30 p.m.
Prior to opening day, soft opening week(s) will feature more screenings of Black Dynamite and Cinema Paradiso, the first movie to ever screen at the original Lyric. Bad Movie Nite returns with all the random hilarity you love to heckle for a Halloween Special on October 21 at 10:30 p.m. A Halloween tradition at The Lyric, featuring shadow cast performances by Northern Colorado’s Favorite Obsession, The Rocky Horror Picture Show comes to life on October 27 at 9:30 p.m. and Halloween night at 7 p.m. A free “Stranger Things” watch party featuring the first two episodes of the second season graces The Lyric’s screens on October 27 at 9 p.m.
Fort Collins’ only independent theatre has changed the way we see the world, and their constant ability to bring the community together with new art and cinema is something to be celebrated. For more information about The Lyric, visit lyriccinema.com.
