Now, Still Cellars Distillery and Arthouse in Longmont will screen the movie in its 49-person capacity space on Monday, June 15.

Based on muffler shop owner Marvin Heemeyer's destructive rampage with an armored bulldozer in the town of Granby in 2004, "Leviathan" picked up a 2015 Academy Award nomination for Best Foreign Language Film.

"It’s gotten strong feedback, and it looks like a powerful film," Still Cellars co-owner Jason Houston says. "We definitely keep our eyes out for local-oriented subjects. The fact that it also has those Colorado roots meant we really wanted to show it."
