The 1949 Film Daily Year Book listed the Pine Theatre (200 seats) as the only theatre in Buena Vista.

According to Boxoffice, Aug. 26, 1950: “Charles DeCastro has sold the Pine Theatre in Buena Vista to John Groy”.

Slightly elaborated/changed in the October 14, 1950 Boxoffice: “BUENA VISTA, COLO. – Mr. and Mrs. Chad DeCastro, owners of the Pine Theatre and confectionery for the last 18 months, have sold both establishments to Louis Groy and Lawrence Wellborn of Saguache, Colo.”

Then on May 12, 1951, Boxoffice wrote, “Buena Vista, with a 1940 census of 779, is on its way to having two theatres. Unable to renew the lease on the Pine Theatre, John Groy is remodeling another building to house the Pearl Theatre, while Joe Delongchamp, owner of the Pine building, will operate that theatre”. It closed around 1961.

The Pines operated until 1961-62 in a historic 1885 building on Main Street that also now houses The Lariat Saloon. It was in the right-hand storefront.

The Lariat’s address is 206 E. Main Street. While this business is in the same building that housed the Pines, I’m not sure if they had the same address as I’ve heard that The Lariat and The Pines were in business at the same time.
