Colorado 4 - Denver, CO

It was on Colorado Boulevard near East Alameda Avenue in the Glendale district of Denver. It was one of the first multiplexes in the area, opening in 1973.

The outside was stucco with a entry way of a huge arch 2 or 3 feet before the main doors.

The movie “American Graffiti” was one of the first four movies to play in the multiplex and was still on the marquee for the cinema’s first birthday. The Colorado 4 Cinemas were operated by AMC Theatres.

Saw a ton of movies here back in the 70’s and 80’s. Distinctly remember that big entrance arch because it faced West and if you went to see something in one of the theaters on the East side in the late afternoon the sun would come streaming in like a spotlight and shine on the screen through the space between the doors. Brilliant Design!! They finally jerry-rigged these ridiculous curtains they set up in front the doors, but I always avoided going here at certain times of the day. Next door to Bob’s Texaco; “A bob cat for service!”

Unfortunately, my memory of the Colorado 4 was from the mid-80s and sitting in the theater and seeing a swarm of bugs crawling all over the wall. My date and I got up and went out to the lobby to complain and we received coupons for free tickets (which we used at a different theater; there was no way I was going back).
