Boulder Weekly Film Series

Boulder Weekly Film Series

The Boulder Theater's Weekly Film Series offers Downtown patrons one of the only opportunities to see a movie in the downtown area. At this historic building you can enjoy a drink, gaze upon hand-painted murals, wonder at the fresco ceiling, and settle in for a stellar night of entertainment. Opened in 1906 as the Curran Opera House, the Boulder Theater showed its first talkie movie in 1927. Now they host weekly films from The famed Big Lebowski nights, where donning a bathrobe gets you discount on drinks, to current hits like American Gangster and I'm Not There.

So come do Dinner and a Movie - Downtown Boulder style - at one of our award-winning restaurants and then find yourself amidst a part of Boulder history as you take in the cinema surrounded by the art deco grandeur of the Boulder Theater.
