Denver's Lost Movie Theaters

Denver's Lost Movie Theaters

Losing landmarks is nothing new in Denver; waves of development have been altering the city’s landscape since the town was nothing more than a plank set across two whiskey barrels. Arts establishments have been particularly vulnerable; more than a hundred cinemas have disappeared from the scene. Some of their original homes still exist, though, including the Webber Show, a century-old venue that just reopened as Archetype distillery. Here are more of the lost movie theaters of Denver.
