Here's what the Bluebird looked like in 1933
The Bluebird Theater as it looks today.
The Bluebird Theater. You know it. You love It. You've been to hundreds of shows there, and have probably driven past it ten times that over the years. You've probably heard the folklore about how at some point the theater apparently used to show dirty pictures sometime before it hosted the Dirty Projectors or whatever.
The Bluebird Theater as it looked eighty years ago.

Well, whatever the case, before that, it used to show first-run movies. Today, somebody on Reddit's /r/Denver posted a shot of the Bluebird as it looked in 1933. (The Library's Western History & Genealogy Blog posted the same shot last summer, but somehow we missed it.) Anyhow, marvel above at how the place looked long before you and I were even a glimmer in our daddy's eye. Wonder what ever happened to that giant bluebird?
