Chevy Chase is coming to Denver to watch “Caddyshack” with his fans

Comedy legend Chevy Chase is headed to Denver this summer for a screening of his classic, 1980 film “Caddyshack” — and you’re invited.

The Aug. 25 event at Bellco Theatre is part of The Backlot Project, a series that brings stars and their best-known movies to stages for screenings, followed by live Q&As with the headliner. Past Denver visits have included John Cleese (“Monty Python and the Holy Grail”), William Shatner (“Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan”), Mel Brooks (“Blazing Saddles”) and John Cusack (“Grosse Pointe Blank.”)

(Full disclosure: I moderated the Cusack showing.)

“Caddyshack,” which co-starred Bill Murray and Rodney Dangerfield, is considered one of the finest post-“Saturday Night Live” movies of all time, given that Chase jumped to it after leaving that sketch show, helping kick off an impressive career as a leading funnyman in Hollywood in films such as “National Lampoon’s Vacation,” “Fletch” and “Three Amigos.”

The 75-year-old most recently played Pierce Hawthrone on NBC’s “Community,” where he reportedly reinforced his reputation as a prickly co-worker.

Tickets to the 6 p.m. show start at $49.75 (the full price range is not yet available) and are on sale at 10 a.m. May 17. They’re available by calling 888-929-7849 or visiting axs.com.

A limited number of VIP tickets will include a post-show photo with Chase and “the best seats in the house,” according to organizers.
