The Chief Theatre was the second movie theatre to be built in Steamboat Springs. Built by an Indian Chief from Oklahoma named Harry Gordon, it opened September 23, 1926 as a single screen theatre with 450 seats. The other theatre was the Alden Theatre that closed shortly after the Chief Theatre opened with talking pictures.
Following a remodel in May 1969 the Chief Theatre was renamed Village Theatre. It was converted to a four-screen theatre showing first run attractions and operated by Carmike Theatres until September 2, 2012. By 2013 it had converted back to a single auditorium and was operating as a performing arts center.
