BEAVER CREEK – A new kid in town assembles a fledgling rock band and together, they achieve their dreams, competing against the best in the biggest event of the year, called Bandslam.

The stage is set for the finale of the Vilar Performing Arts Center’s Free Family Film Series tonight as the movie “Bandslam” brings down the curtain on the theater’s free movies series. The movie starts at 6:30 p.m.

Following the film, teens can spend the remainder of the evening dancing to the tunes of DJ Mo Rockin in the Vilar lobby, with Moctails priced at $4 each and cupcakes for $3. Kids age 11 and up are welcome at the post-show party, with anyone under the age of 13 needing to be accompanied by someone 16 years of age or older.

In the film “Bandslam” teenager Will Burton (Gaelan Connell) lives in his head, which is filled with music. When his mother (Lisa Kudrow) gets a new job in New Jersey, Will starts his junior year at a new school only to find the old cliques still apply, but rock-n-roll rules the scene.

The Vilar Performing Arts Center is a project of the Vail Valley Foundation. For more information on the Vail Valley Foundation, visit vvf.org.
