On the Big Screen
This special, FREE community screening will feature two episodes of “Colorado Experience”:
According to the Colorado Springs Gazette, Colorado “has more than 1,000 ghost towns, over 600 which have some sort of remains.” Visit St. Elmo, Animas Forks, and Ashcroft, three of the best-preserved ghost towns in the state, and meet the spirits of Colorado’s mining past.
Colorado and the West are where American mountain biking began. From the Denver Athletic Club’s Pikes Peak summit on bicycles in 1891 to the Buffalo Soldiers’ ride to Yellowstone in 1897, mountain biking has long had a place in Colorado.
Its modern debut came in 1978 when mountain biking pioneers from Marin County, California, visited Crested Butte’s second “Klunker Tour.” Since then, Crested Butte has led the state in creating singletrack for beginners and experts alike, inspiring other towns to cater to this now-Olympic sport with an ever-growing fan base.
Doors open at 5:30 and the screening begins at 6:00 in the SteamPlant theater.
Admission is FREE and a Q&A session will follow the episodes.
