Alpine Theatre

The Alpine Theatre was opened prior to 1926. Still listed in the Film Daily Yearbook of 1952 as the Alpine Theatre, it was closed in February 1954. In August 1954 it reopened as the Uptown Theatre seating 590. It was the Alpine Theatre again in 1957, and was possibly about to close. It was taken over by a church.

It was seriously damaged by a fire on April 8, 2021. The congregation plans to rebuild and restore the building.

Here’s the scoop on the name change, from the Aug. 7, 1954 Motion Picture Herald: “Harold Cunyus, owner of the Roxy, has leased the Alpine, renamed it the Uptown, and is reopening it after he installs CinemaScope and does some other remodeling and renovating. The house has been closed for some time.”

Motion Picture Herald, Feb. 27, 1954: “Ed Nesbit, owner of the Alpine, is here (in Denver) inventorying and closing the theatre, in preparation to getting the building ready for other businesses. Clarence Martin, who has been operating the house, has given up his lease.”
