Originally opened in 1911 as the Rialto Theatre, it was later renamed Chipita Theatre. It was remodelled/rebuilt in 1935 to the plans of architect Robert O. Boller of architectural firm Boller Brothers and renamed Ute Theatre.
The Pueblo Deco style former Ute Theatre was a fixture of downtown Colorado Springs for decades, with its distinctive Native American-inspired blade marquee overlooking Pike’s Peak Avenue. Just down the street was the Chief Theatre, which has since been razed.
The Ute Theatre was dismantled and rebuilt after it closed in 1968 and moved to a new location nearby where it was rebuilt as a steakhouse, which it still serves as today.
