Views & Brews American Landscape Film Series: Close Encounters of the Third Kind

Feb 28, 2019


In complement to Longmont Museum’s Ansel Adams: Early Works exhibit, enjoy a series of films featuring the American landscape. Our series will take you from Yosemite’s mighty Half Dome and Wyoming’s Devil’s Tower to Mt. Rushmore and the American South.

Special $2 beers from Left Hand Brewing Company. All movies are also paired with a signature cocktail, and galleries are open (5–9 pm) to enjoy for free with your film ticket.

Roy Neary (Richard Dreyfuss) witnesses an unidentified flying object, and even has a “sunburn” from its bright lights to prove it. Haunted by images of Devil’s Tower, Roy paints, draws, sculpts and ultimately makes a pilgrimage to America’s first National Monument. Refusing to accept an explanation for what he saw, he risks his life to pursue the truth about UFOs.
