Opened in 1970, this was one amazing and in some ways, historic theater. It was your standard example of a Cooper theater, complete with the orange roof. I visited this theater many times while growing up. Operated by the Commonwealth Amusement chain, and by United Artists, the last movie I saw there was "Spiderman" (2002), and it was closed in 2004.

It was sold for $800,000.00 to the AGUR Foundation. Journey Christian Church now uses the building and the landmark orange roof has been removed and replaced. This theater sat just one block East of the Carmike 5.

Before being operated by Commonwealth (as mentioned in the intro above) this was run by The Cooper Foundation (1970-74) and Cooper-Highland (1975-78). Commonwealth Amusement acquired the Cooper properties in ‘78.

The Cooper Twin opened on February 25, 1970. The debut attractions were “Funny Girl” and “Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice.” According to an article in The Greeley Daily Tribune, published around the time the theater opened, this was the first twin theater built in Colorado.
