Colfax is an old gold mining town from the 1849 gold rush in Northern California. The Colfax Theater was opened in 1939 with 394 seats, and was a replacement for an earlier Colfax Theatre, located on Depot Street, which burnt down. It was renovated in 1988-1989 to the plans of Sacramento architect Jay Hyde.
When you first enter the theater you will see a display of the historic old movie equipment. The Colfax Theater played current running films for $6.50; there are never any large crowds.
It was the best place to be for the opening night of a big movie. Best buy around too, and well worth the 15-20 minute drive coming from Auburn or Grass Valley (many drive up from Sacramento (45miles). The Colfax Theatre was closed in around November 2008. It was reopened December 2014 as a live music venue, with occasional movies.
