Skyline Theatre

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Opened in 1917 as the Jones Theatre, with 999 seats. It was just a couple of buildings along Main Street from the Canon City Opera House (later Sarah Theatre).

It was re-named Skyline Theatre around 1935. The seating capacity had then been reduced to 748. This small town theatre is still a single screen, playing first run movies.

The Skyline Theater was built, as a Movie Theater, in 1918. It still operates, showing first run movies. It now seats 256. We still have the balcony(not in use by the public). It was remodeled about 5 years ago by the previous owners. Looks great. They put alot of care into it.

The Skyline now operates as a first-run house in the digital age. Driving through Canon City today, they are playing X-Men: Apocalypse.
