Sunset Cinema Book Club

Sunset Cinema returns in 2019 with a season dedicated to literary greats. Join us at BookBar for a pre-movie discussion about the book that inspired the movie.

About the movie event:

“I burn, I pine, I perish!” Words expressed by Cameron about his love for Bianca (and her Prada backpack), but originally said by Lucentio for the object of his affection in Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew. 10 Things I Hate About You (1999) is a timeless teen rom-com featuring an epic ensemble cast, including the late Heath Ledger’s first appearance in an American film, and it still holds up 20 years later.

This summer, we will explore movie hits that are based off novels probably covered in your high school English class. As always, the outdoor film screenings made possible by Denver Film Society will include themed pre-show games and entertainment, fun food and beverage options for purchase, costume contests (with prizes!) and more. No need to crack open the CliffsNotes, local partners like Denver Public Library and Book Bar will help us bring these classics to life before we even hit play. Please bring a chair for the movie and come prepared for any weather since these events are rain or shine.

Tickets? Ugh, As If! This is a FREE event, but please RSVP so we know you’re coming:


7 - 8 PM: Costume Contest & Games (Come early to set up your space and grab some food!)
