Woody Allen's "Sleeper" is one of the few films that Allen left NYC to film. Many sites in Colorado were used including NCAR (visit link
) , the Deaton House (nicknamed the 'Sleeper' house) and the Denver Botanic Gardens (visit link
) . For more information (visit link
The original church (now the bookstore and meeting rooms) of the Mile Hi Church was used as a McDonald's in the year 2173 with a sign announcing 1,000,000,000... sold! The structure itself was an experiment in construction. It was built by making a huge mound of dirt; covering the dirt with the concrete; allowing the concrete to cure; then digging out all the dirt. A newer, larger church has been built using newer techniques from Germany to create a similar structure. (I will post that Waymark soon and link it here)
