A film about a beloved Denver legend premieres on Tuesday, Nov. 15.

“Keep a Light in Your Window,” tells the story of Daddy Bruce Randolph, who was famous for feeding some of Denver’s poorest people – as well as the Denver Broncos of the 1960s and ’70s.

The documentary will be played at EXDO Event Center, 1399 35th Street. The event from from 5:30 to 10 p.m. on Nov. 15. Tickets are $12, and donations will be collected for baskets of food for people in need.

Donations will be collected to pay for baskets of food for the annual Daddy Bruce Thanksgiving Food Distribution.

There are still a few mementoes of Randolph’s life scattered around Denver, like Bruce Randolph Avenue and Bruce Randolph School. Randolph died at the age of 94, without a penny, and the late Broncos owner Pat Bowlen joined with the community to pay for his funeral, as detailed in Joe Vaccarelli’s feature for the Post.

The documentary has a website with more information.
