#13: See a Movie!
There’s nothing wrong with hitting the theaters after a long day of goat showing! (Especially because that’s 2-3 hours of free air-conditioning!) There are tons of great theaters in the area. The closest are the Metrolux 12 – 6085 Sky Pond Dr. Loveland, CO 80538 (3 miles from the Ranch) and the Cinemark Fort Collins- 4721 South Timberline Rd, Fort Collins, CO 80525 (9 miles from The Ranch).
I will also direct your attention to the Holiday Twin Drive-In in Fort Collins (pictured above). Clearly, drive-in movie theaters are extremely rare these days, so it is a great opportunity to experience this American classic once again! http://www.holidaytwindrivein.com/ The Holiday Twin shows 4 movies each night, a double feature on each of two screens. It is located at 2206 South Overland Trail in Fort Collins, which is 18 miles (about 30 minutes) from The Ranch.
Here are a few of the big summer movies that will be in theaters during your stay. Click on the title for more information on each movie:

A male stripper teaches a younger performer how to party, pick up women, and make easy money.
Ted (Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis)
A story centered on a man and his teddy bear, who comes to life as the result of a childhood wish. (Take note: this is DEFINITELY not a kid’s movie, despite what the plot sounds like. Rated R.)

Prometheus (Noomi Rapace, Logan Marshall-Green)
A team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race. (Take note: This movie is already in theaters, but it is immensely popular and I would be surprised if it weren’t still in theaters during the National Show)
