Starz offers 'getaway' from convention

Denver-based network programs movies, panels

Denver-based Starz is offering a "getaway from the convention hubbub" during the Democratic National Convention in the Mile High City next month.

The Starz Green Room will offer screenings of Starz series and movies from sibling Overture Films as well as topical panels and refreshments for attendees.

"The presidential race this year marks an extraordinary time for the country, and since the Democrats are meeting in our backyard, we thought it was an ideal opportunity for us to welcome them with a mixture of hospitality and food for thought," Starz chairman/CEO Robert Clasen said.
