This theater has been closed for a few years now. Parts of the theater were torn down in order to make room a Dick’s Sporting Goods Store.

Theater was originally was owned by Commonwealth. Commonwealth was later bought out by United Artists. Later along with the Cole Square 3 this theater was bought by current owner Carmike. Unlike the Carmike theaters in Casper and Rock Springs this location survived the chopping block when the company was in chapter 11 bankruptcy early in this decade.

Later on this location along with the theater at the Frontier Mall were sold to Carmike, the current owner.

Can’t tell you much about the history of this theater located at 2nd and Center other than the fact that Commonwealth Theaters leased the theater in 80s. In the late 80s it was sold and then remodeled. I remember standing in line several times to watch a double feature for just $1.50. Also remember, as many did waiting to see movies there for a cheap price, as they had play at the theater in Eastridge Mall or Beverly Plaza before moving to the America or Rialto downtown. The first of many double futures watched was BIG and something with John Candy I think. Last year the theater was remodeled once again. The movie screen size was reduced during this remodel.

MichaelGraham commented about Villa Italia Cinema on Sep 11, 2006 at 4:57 pm

I remember watching How Shoot Roger Rabbit there in the summer of ‘88 while on vacation in Denver. If I remember right it was a twin screen theater at the corner of Alameda and Wadsworth. Seems, as though the auditoriums had a center aisle with seas on each side. Also remember the theater having a large screen right in front of the building. With all of the new malls like Park Meadow and Flatirons being built Villa Italia was forced to close it doors a few years back. I think the theater closed well before that, as it seems, as though the trend has been to built multiplexes with several screens, not just one or two. Check out the link at the bottom to see a story by CNN. I think building in the lower right hand corner of the photo in the story is the theater, which if I am correct was owned by Mann (the folks that ran the Chinese Theater in Hollywood). Not sure what ever happened to Mann, but my guess they were bought out by AMC or United Artists.
