Elvis Cinemas invites wide-eyed audiences to plunge into the ocean, soar above the clouds, and traipse across stretches of barren desert, all from the comfort of a theater seat. Its trio of theaters shows Hollywood blockbusters but keeps ticket prices down by playing them slightly after their initial release, when the characters have learned from their mistakes and changed their movie’s plot accordingly. Unlike the massive movie corporations whose theater complexes pop up in every city and shopping mall, Elvis Cinemas is Colorado owned and operated and focuses all its attention on just three theaters.

The take-home pedicure kits at The Denver Nail Lounge are more than a nice perk; they also help the staff uphold the highest level of sanitation and safety. By equipping clients with their own set of files, buffers, and toe separators—as well as disinfecting all tools—techs are able to divert their attention from worrying about cleanliness to getting lost in the salon’s line of pampering pedicures. This comfort has the added benefit of creating a friendly rapport between clients and technicians, allowing them to chat, laugh, and gossip about weather reports during gel manicures and brow waxes.
In addition to harboring safe practices, the salon’s interior creates a festive vibe with hot-pink pedicure thrones, bright orange pillows, and shelves boasting a kaleidoscopic rainbow of OPI polishes.
Having filmed their own skate, surf, and snowboard movies for years, Matt D’Amico and Jeff Barrett acquired a taste for digital videography. When Matt and Jeff launched Valley Home Movies, they combined their passion for video editing with their knowledge of antiquated and modern video formats. Using high-capacity computers, they transfer every frame from aging formats such as 8mm and VHS onto reliable DVDs and convert old photos and slides to digital files, ensuring prom pictures may be ridiculed by future generations.
The pair also puts their editing skills to good use, laying down beats for accompanying DVD soundtracks and crafting individualized DVD menus. Videography services and sound engineering round out the company’s offerings, though the staff also shoots still photography, repairs computers, and develops websites.
