Historical views of the the theater’s interior can be seen on its history page, both in its first incarnation as an opera house and then later as a movie theater. Click on the “Official” link in the headnote, then on “Venue Info,” and then on “History.”

My wife and I thank Sarah Coffield, Publicity and Promotions for the Boulder Theatre, for her hospitality in letting us see the inside of the theatre when we spent a day in Boulder two weeks ago. It is a truly beautiful theatre, with an auditorium decorative scheme that is largely intact, with original murals and patterns thoughout.

The Boulder Theater is a wonderful venue. I am a projectionist there and have been involved with the theater for 3 years. The theater still has most of its historic features intact including two very large and beautiful murals, one on each wall. It also plays host to a very fun and creative staff. There are no traditional theater seats in the main auditorium. Instead, there is a large bar as well as versatile seating that sometimes includes tables. The balcony still has its vintage theater seats. The theater plays host to many events including concerts, plays, film festivals, and a weekly film series. The theater just got a brand new sound system for its films in January of 2009. The booth has two Ballantyne Pro-35 projectors equipped for 6 thousand foot reel changeover. Occasionally, a film will be shown digitally via a DLP projector downstairs on the soundrack.
The head Union projectionist, John Templeton is an expert technician who has been involved in every end of the entertainment business including tech work for concerts, plays, political events, camera crews, athletic events and has projected at many theaters and drive-ins in the area. He has around 35 years experience and has been projecting at the Boulder Theater for 30 years.

I attended the live taping of the Etown radio show a couple of times in August, 2008 at the Boulder Theater. Beautiful theater! A lot of history in that place.

I understand that a Robert – Morton theater pipe organ was installed in that theater back in 1923. I have an interest in old historic theater pipe organs and in pipe organs in general. Are there any old time photos of that theater pipe organ installation available?
