Weekly Round Up (8.31.17 – 9.7.17)

Every Labor Day weekend, the small mountain town of Telluride, Colorado becomes the center of the moviegoing universe, and for four days, I sit in darkened theaters, subsisting on Steamie’s burgers and Russell Kelly Pale Ale.

With the exception of one dud (Downsizing, and I do mean dud) this year’s festival offered movies that ranged from good to masterpiece. In this week’s Boulder Weekly,  I sing the praises of WormwoodFirst ReformedFaces Places, and Lady Bird: Best in show.

As my Boulder Country tour de brew wraps up, my associate and I pay a visit to Broomfield’s C.B. & Potts: Fresh Beer at Flatiron Crossing.

For Out of sight, out of mind no more, I spoke with climate change documentarian Jeff Orlowski. I tend to watch an inordinate amount of these docs for work, but this was the only one I’ve enjoyed enough to watch twice. It is currently streaming on Netflix.
