CDIFF (Children's Day International Film Festival) just expanded it's programming by partnering with the International Youth Silent Film Festival this year. This partnership brings the opportunity for young filmmakers to create a silent film using the musical scores provided at makeasilentfilm.com. We also encourage all ages to submit their family friendly films.

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

For many years we have been raising funds and applying for grants to complete phase III of the restoration. The building has a temporary occupancy license which allows us to do programming from the middle of May to mid October. Currently, we are processing an insurance claim from a major windstorm and our hope is to be back in the theatre by the summer of 2019.
