Located in the Lakeside district of Denver. The Yates Theatre was listed as seating 500 in the Film Daily Yearbook of 1928.

In a Westword Magazine article from January 20, 2014 titled “Yates Theater Could Be Resurected As A Music Venue” by Patricia Calhoun discusses how current building owners Debbie Lease and Eric Satie (who purchased it from a unnamed family that had owned the theatre building since the 1950’s) are looking to renovate the theatre into a musical venue and how the Art-Deco style auditorium remains intact.

Another (very well done) article in the Westword from November 18, 2015 titles “Denver’s Lost Movie Theatres Take One Roll ‘Em” by Brad Weismann mentions the Yates Theatre as also being known as the Coronet Theatre and the Rex Theatre.

By 1931 it had been renamed Rex Theatre and was still operating under that name in 1952, but had closed by 1955. With that said, the article mentioned (as with the Westword Magazine in general) was very well done and on-point/factual so I’ll trust this information until someone comes up with something that differs.
