Spend time outside or participate in a plethora of virtual events that help our city reconnect and flourish in spite of COVID-19 restrictions. Here are some exciting happenings this September. 

BIFF Drive-In

When: various showtimes throughout September

Where: Boulder Municipal Airport 

Named one of the top 25 film festivals in the country, BIFF enthusiasts and film lovers alike were sorely disappointed with the cancellation of this year’s festival. However, BIFF shifted gears and decided to screen its films as drive-in movies, allowing everyone to enjoy this festival safely. Patrons are invited to bring their own food, including take-out from local restaurants, and enjoy a variety of screenings, film genres, and Boulder’s great outdoors. 

Dairy Drive In: Oliver Sacks – His Own Life

This remarkable film provides viewers an in-depth look at a smart, troubled, fascinating man and his exploration into the unknown.
