The current owner of the Ute Theatre has a bit of information about its operation on this web page. The building dates from 1916 and was originally a livery stable.

A few years of the Saguache Crescent have been digitized and can be searched from this web page (you’ll have to answer a couple of brief consumer survey-type questions to view the scans.) In 1925 and 1931, a movie house called the Saguache Theatre advertised in the paper, and in 1937 there was a Rialto Theatre. I don’t know if these were AKA’s for the Ute Theatre or not. The earliest available year of the newspaper with ads for the Ute is 1943.

September 2012: the Ute Theatre is open, presenting a combination of films, live music, and theatre. The front of the theatre contains a bar and snack bar/pizzeria.
