COLORADO'S MOST ICONIC THEATRE

Theatre History

The Elitch Theatre has been a vital part of Colorado’s cultural landscape since its inception in 1891.

RESTORING FOR THE COMMUNITY

Future of the Theatre

We are working on fundraising for Phase III of restoration. Preservation of the already restored parts of the theatre continue. 2018 preservation will include a fresh coat of paint along with a new roof.

OUT UNDER THE BEAUTIFUL STARS

Summer Film Series

No films will be shown inside the theatre this season due to the structural damage caused by the windstorm. We will have three films on the lawn starting on June 15th. Two additional special screenings will happen during our Children's Day International Film Festival on Nov. 10th & 11th of "Coco" and "Beauty and the Beast" at The Bug Theatre, who has so graciously given us a home.

FUN, EXCITING AND AFFORDABLE
