The legendary comedic-genius Mel Brooks is coming to the Mile High city for a special screening of one of his all-time classics!

'Blazing Saddles' comes in at #6 on the American Film Institute's 'Funniest Movies of All Time.' It's hard to argue- it's hilarious!

On Saturday, October 6, 2018, you can catch a screening of the movie along with its writer-director-actor Mel Brooks! The showing will be at the beautiful Bellco Theatre in Denver.

This is another event put on by the folks at the Backlot Project, where they bring the most beloved stars of television and film from the screen to an exciting and intimate live setting. Each Backlot Project is interactive and takes audiences behind the scenes as the brightest stars engage in a tell-all conversation with the talents that brought their favorite moments in entertainment to life.

Gene Wilder, Cleavon Little, Harvey Korman, Madeline Kahn.. so many great performances!

I think they've picked the perfect time of day for the showing- 2 p.m. That makes for a GREAT Saturday in Denver: Get down there for some lunch, see the screening, and get home by 6 p.m. the latest!

I wonder how many stories Mel has about the making of the movie. Will he talk about 'the horse?' Will he talk about the 'farts around the campfire?'  How will the movie's use of the 'N' word be handled?

Tickets are on sale now ($49.75- $129.75) through AXS HERE!
