Commonwealth Theatres operated this location until the 1990s, when I assume it was closed or let go by its new owners, United Artists Theaters.

Will the Sherman make it to its 90th birthday next August? New photos in the pictures section.

Glad to see this success story is still operating. New photo in the pictures section.

Too bad the Barron has been unable to join the digital age. And now the sidewalk in front of the house is torn up. New photos in the pictures section.

The “Renovate The State” project – aiming to raise funds for a restoration of the State Theater – is the marquee message this summer. Anyone out there from the area who can give us a progress report? New photos in the pictures section.

Fascinating historical information about the former Rex Theatre available from the Louisville Library: http://www.louisville-library.org/Portals/1/pdf/Louisville%20Historian/2010-2_Spring.pdf

Beginning in August 2014, this location became part of the Cinebarre chain of restaurant/theaters. Auditorium count went down to 11 from the previous 12 rooms.

Typed in “Winter of 1996” when it is obviously – by the marquee – summer of that year.

With 38 AMC screens at two locations just a few miles south, there’s never a long wait at the Colony Square 12.

Caught one of the final theatrical showings of All Is Lost here on Thanksgiving evening – tiny room, but that didn’t matter once the show began. And I was thrown for a minute when I realized we were watching an actual 35mm print – scratches, dust and all – and not a digital presentation. That is old school!

My brothers and I – while staying in nearby Cascade on a family vacation – attended a showing of Dudley Moore’s dreadful comedy “Wholly Moses” at this tiny theatre circa 1980. My memories are dim, but the theatre seemed like a fairly new venue at the time.

kpdennis commented about Old Town 14 Theatre on Jul 9, 2013 at 11:40 am

Despite Landmark’s branding as an “art house” chain, the Olde Town’s bookings have remained resolutely mainstream. One constant since the theatre’s opening: the cool, giant-sized photos of early day Arvada in the lobby, a nice local touch!

kpdennis commented about Cooper 6 Theatre on Jul 9, 2013 at 11:30 am

The Boxoffice article references the long-gone Arvada Plaza theatre, in a dilapidated shopping center about five miles south of the former UA Coooper 6.

kpdennis commented about Cinebarre Thornton Town Center on Jul 9, 2013 at 10:54 am

Responding to Scottneff query: The Commonwealth, and then the UA city offices were at the Continental Theatre. The UA corporate headquarters were in Englewood/DTC, not a mile or so from the Greenwood Plaza. The corporate hq building currently houses National Cinemedia (co-owned by Regal, who bought UA).

kpdennis commented about Windsor 10 on Jul 6, 2013 at 12:07 pm

I was working for UA Theatres corporate hq in the 1990s – don’t think this was a United Artists location. I attended a few shows here in the early 90s and never got in free!

kpdennis commented about Arvada Elvis Cinemas 8 on Apr 22, 2012 at 11:06 am

Opened as a newly constructed venue in the mid-1990s as part of the multi-state Super Saver Cinemas chain. At some point it became Silver Cinemas, and finally the locally-owned (Littleton, CO – based) Elvis Cinemas, which took over the three Super Saver venues in the Denver metro area.
