Visible in archive domestic footage at the beginning of Episode 2, “Riding the Tiger,” of the PBS documentary THE VIETNAM WAR, and appears to have been showing Peter Sellers in the 1962 film version of WALTZ OF THE TOREADORS. The Ute Theater can be glimpsed across the street.

It now has three screens. Upstairs offices were converted into the third screen.

Have great memories of this classic place from my teen years, I remember that in late 70’s early 80’s they rarely got the big hits, losing out to the Cooper 3, or the Ute 70 usually. I recall at one time the marquis reading an X rated feature,“Catherine & Co” but I think for no more than a week. The last seats in the balcony felt miles away from the screen if you got stuck there as we did for a really bad flick called “Dirty Tricks” w/Kate Jackson & Elliot Gould (I think) Still a few great Rocky Horror Midnight Movie memories. Glad that now they can show top of the line non-commercial features.Hope it stays around for decades more.
