This paragraph is from a brief article about a Steger & Sons piano, originally installed in Clyne’s Theatre, now in the possession of the Steelworks Center Museum in Pueblo:

“The Clyne Theater, located at 417-419 West Northern Avenue, opened in June of 1917 with a showing of Satan’s Private Door, a Musty Suffer comedy, and an ‘athletic short’ film. According to a Pueblo Chieftain article, more than 3,000 people attended the films throughout the day. The theater included 800 seats on the lower level and 300 in the balcony. Advertisements for the theater describe it as having gradually sloping seats, a sunken orchestra pit under the front of the stage, and a drinking fountain in the lobby. In August 1934, the Clyne closed for a short time to install the latest in theater technology, an RCA Victor Photophone High Fidelity Sound System, rendering the piano an obsolete piece of theater technology. The Clyne Theater remained in operation showing films until the late 1960s. The Steger and Sons Piano was donated to the Steelworks Center in 2007.”
An item about the Clyne Theatre appearing in the April 14, 1917 issue of The American Contractor names G. W. Roe as the architect for the project. A brief biography of George W. Roe from the Colorado Historical Society says that he also designed the 1904 library building at the University of Colorado in Boulder which was later converted into the University Theatre.
