The Rocky Mountain Women’s Film Institute may be best known for its massive, annual Film Festival (occurring in 2018 on Nov. 9-11), but this dedicated local organization hosts film screenings and special events of all kinds throughout the year. One new event, Rooftop Cinema, comes thanks to RMWFI's partnership with 333 ECO, a cool, new apartment building.

As it sounds, Rooftop Cinema is a film screening event, held at dusk on the roof of these downtown apartments (333 E. Colorado Ave.).

RMWFI’s next Rooftop Cinema, (Aug. 18), will present Three Identical Strangers, a documentary film about identical triplets who were separated at birth and coincidentally managed to find each other in adulthood. But in spite of the feel-good beginning of the triplets' stories, the reason for their separation comes to light, and the truth has some disturbing repercussions.

The film has been critically acclaimed, and Peter Howell of the Toronto Star called it: "A documentary with a story so outlandish it might well have been rejected by a Hollywood studio had a screenwriter pitched it as the basis of a fictional movie."

Tickets to Rooftop Cinema include food and drinks provided by El Taco Rey, La'au's Taco Shop, Pikes Peak Lemonade Company and more to be announced. There will also be live music by Ryan Flores before the screening.

Insiders say tickets are going fast, so folks are encouraged to register right away.
