UTE 70 Theatre exterior

The former UTE Theatre on 126 E. Pikes Peak Avenue was closed around 1968. This theatre at a new location replaced it. When this theatre closed around 1991, it became the Antique Gallery, and later became a climbing center.

The Ute 70 Theatre was designed by Mel C. Glatz, in association with architect Maynard Rorman, according to a history of Cooper Theatres that was once available on the Cooper Foundation’s web site (it has since been removed.)

The Boxoffice article Tinsetoes linked to says that Richard L. Crowther & Associates were the on-site architects for this theater.

I saw two cinema classics here–the De Laurentiis KING KONG in December 1976, and AIRPORT ‘77 a few months later. I remember the theater being pretty impressive with a very large screen. Unfortunately, I moved from Colorado Springs before having a chance to see AIRPORT '79. (darn the luck!)
