Back on the GIANT Screen in Colorado

The Continental Theatre resumes its Flashback Features program in June, with screenings of classic films on Wednesdays at 9PM on their 78' wide screen.

The Continental boasts one of the largest screens in the world. Instead of tearing it down or splitting it into smaller theatres, United Artists built 5 small auditoriums alongside it in 1996 and Regal is currently adding 4 additional theatres to the site. According to Fandango, the theatre appears to be undergoing a name change as well, becoming the "Centennial 6."

Regardless of the name, are very few cinemas left in the world that can provide a blockbuster experience like that of the main house at the Continental. It is THE place to see current releases like Iron Man and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull AND classics like Back to the Future and Grease.
