The Oriental Theater opened on Christmas Eve, 1927 as one of Denver’s original movie palaces. With the assistance of MOD Productions, the Oriental now operates as a multi-media event venue featuring classic movies, artwork in the lobby and concerts on the weekends. This is the only Colorado theater featuring exclusively classic films.

I proposed to my girlfriend in March 11, 2006 at this wonderful theater. Sweden’s “The Flower Kings” were playing a concert that evening, and they brought me on stage where I proposed to her. Needless to say, the Oriental will always hold a special place in my heart.

Talk about finding new uses for old movie theatres. Apparently a very colorful venue:
