News About This Theater
Built in 1906 as the Curran Opera House, the theatre was initially a place for live music and stage shows as well as silent film from 1915. By 1929 it had been renamed Isis Theatre.
Following the boom in motion picture exhibition, the theatre was remodelled in 1936 and reopened as the Boulder Theater and included the more attractive and then relevant Art Deco aesthetic. By the time of its rebirth in 1936, the Boulder Theatre had became a venue for the movies onlya format it maintained until 1978 when movie going alone could no longer pay all of the Boulder’s bills.
In 1981, the theatre was converted into a concert hall, but once again, The Boulder Theatre could not remain viable. In 1988, it underwent yet another renovation to incorporate a more concert-friendly seating and acoustic makeover.
Today, the Boulder Theatre has remained a prime venue for concerts and true to its Art Deco past despite numerous renovations. The theatre also shows occasional movies.
