Sunday Night at the Movies

If you’re reading this, it shows you have an interest in excellent films, good food and great company - all of which St. Francis’ Sunday Night at the Movies provides!


This free monthly event is usually held on the second Sunday of each month - although dates can sometimes change as we share space with the St. Francis Theatre as well as other events.

We start off each Sunday Night at the Movies with a potluck dinner, which begins at 5:00 pm.


We ask that you bring a main dish, salad, or filling side dish to share. St. Francis will provide the drinks and desserts. While we hope everyone will bring something to share, no one will ever be turned away if they can’t.



Depending on the length of the movie, we will start the film between 5:30 and 5:45 pm. We usually conclude with a discussion of the film, and often times will have a panel to give us enlightening information on the subject of the film.

For 2020, we again have 12 wonderful movies selected by our attendees. So come join us for dinner and a movie!

Ron Stallworth is the first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department. Determined to make a name for himself, Stallworth bravely sets out on a dangerous mission: infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan. The detective soon recruits a more seasoned colleague, Jewish detective Flip Zimmerman, into the undercover investigation of a lifetime. Together, they team up to take down the extremist hate group as the organization aims to sanitize its rhetoric to appeal to the mainstream. Alternately chilling and hysterically funny.
