This building was completed in 1904 as the University Library. When a new library was built in 1940, this space was converted into a theatre by prominent Boulder architect Glen Huntington in the Art Deco style. It was called “The Little Theater” to distinguish it from the 2100 seat Macky Auditorium nearby. The university’s International Film Series was founded in 1941 and used this space as their primary venue. Well into the 1960s this was Boulder’s only “art house” showing films of Bergman, Fellini, Brakhage, and Warhol. During that time it was also the campus’s main live theatre venue.
