festival freaks

fear on the

front range

The team that brought you the Front Range Film Festival and the Lyons Film Festival is bringing you a whole new festival, just for those horror fanatics.
Fear and Film on the Front Range brings you contemporary and classic horror films for one night (October 21st) at the haunted Dickens Opera House. Along with Films will be the many workshops through out the day illustrating the behind the scene process’s such as costume and make up design that effectively suspends our disbelief.

The Dickens Opera House

Originally built in 1881 by William Henry Dickens a relative of the famous author Charles Dickens, William Henry came to the area in 1860 as a young man, the son of Mary Allen.

When he built the opera house he was one of the largest land owners of the time. The parcel that the building sits on was given to his father by Ulysses S. Grant, the president.

Now you can find the best food and atmosphere in the territory, in an authentic setting, with friendly staff and nightlife unlike any other
