Affordable Film Screenings Benefit Douglas County Libraries Foundation in July
Families can escape on affordable film adventures during the month of July and give back to their community at the same time. The Kids Camp film series at Alamo Drafthouse in Littleton offers pick-your-own pricing — $1, $3, or $5 — with all ticket proceeds in July benefiting Douglas County Libraries Foundation.
Kids Camp films offer family-friendly fare for kids of all ages. The G- and PG-rated film screenings in July include “The Muppets Take Manhattan,” “Monsters vs. Aliens,” “Sing,” “The Land Before Time,” and “Despicable Me.”
Screenings take place weekdays during matinee hours, and families can pick their own ticket price: $1, $3 or $5. Tickets may be purchased online to reserve seats in advance. Movies are an entertaining way to complement summer reading, and 100 percent of Kids Camp ticket sales in July benefit Douglas County Libraries Foundation.
Douglas County Libraries Foundation helps fund programs that reach youth, adults and families in Douglas County and across Colorado, and helps ensure the long-term success of its libraries, which are critical to education, neighborhood development, workforce development, and economic development.
Tickets for Alamo’s Kids Camp screenings may be purchased at Alamo Drafthouse in Littleton (7301 S. Santa Fe Drive) or online. Donations to Douglas County Libraries Foundation may also be made directly via DCL.org/foundation. For more information, call (303) 791-7323.
Douglas County Libraries elevates our community by inspiring a love of reading, discovery and connection.

Other Colorado Coloring Groups

We’ll provide the pictures, crayons and colored pencils or bring your own if you prefer. You provide the time and creativity. No rules here – you may color outside the lines. Red grass and green sky – What a concept! Have some fun with us. Attendees must be 18 years or older.
When the going gets tough, real women (and men) COLOR! Coloring not only brings back happy memories of childhood; it promotes a sense of well-being and relaxation. The act of coloring engages your hands as well as your mind, releasing serotonin… and that makes you HAPPY! So step away from the digital world of computers and electronics, and join us for an evening of conversation, creativity and most of all… COLOR!
Join other creatively minded community members, bring your girlfriends or book club for a unique evening inspired by the new trend of therapeutic coloring. We’ll provide the coloring books, colored pencils and a few book recommendations that escape the ordinary from two members of our staff: Sarah Taylor and Lisa Ekelman. Feel free to color inside or outside the lines! Check the events calendar for more details on dates and times.
