Los Frikis Screening Event

July 24 @ 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$25 – $75

Join us to welcome the "Peanut Butter Falcon boys" back to town! Don't miss this special screening of their new film, followed by a Q&A with Tyler Nilson and Michael Schwartz. Inspired by true events, Los Frikis is a powerful coming-of-age story set in early 90s Cuba, centering around 18-year-old Gustavo (Eros de la Puente) who idolizes his older brother Paco (an astonishing Héctor Medina) and his punk, "Frikis" bandmates. When word reaches the Frikis of a potential reprieve from the effects of the economic crisis, they do the now unthinkable: deliberately inject themselves with HIV to live at a government-run treatment home. It's there that these teenagers create their own utopia full of joy, rock'n'roll, and freedom. Content suitable for age 14 and up. Also, a special, exclusive, and limited opportunity! Visit with filmmakers Tyler Nilson & Michael Schwarz at a VIP cocktail reception prior to the screening and Q&A of their new film, LOS FRIKIS. Join us on the Comiskey Terrace at the Center for the Arts for light snacks, beer, wine & N/A drinks. Ticket information: The screening w/Q&A starts at 7pm and tickets are $25. The pre-screening cocktail reception will go from 5-7pm, tickets include the screening, and tickets are $75.

Annual events in Crested Butte and Gunnison

Gunnison Valley is also host to several beloved annual events. A classic winter event is The Alley Loop, a Nordic ski race that doubles as a costume contest. In fall, Mt. Crested Butte hosts the famous Chili and Beer Festival. Every summer in Gunnison, a crowd gathers to watch America’s fourth-oldest rodeo, Cattlemen’s Days. There are also festivals in Crested Butte that celebrate local art, music, wildflowers, and more. Attending an annual event is a good way to connect with the culture of the Gunnison Valley. You might even create a new tradition for you and your family and friends!
