The Wilshire Twin Theatre was opened on October 20, 1972 with Peter Sellers in “Where Does It Hurt?” & Bob Hope in “Cancel My Reservation”. Seating was provided for arounf 300 in each auditorium. It was operated by the Cooper Foundation until 1974 when it was taken over by Cooper-Highland. It was operated by the Commonwealth Amusement chain from 1978. Never got a chance to attend this theatre. I remember that it closed very suddenly with the marquee stating "Closed for Repairs". Needless to say, it never reopened. After it closed, several Greeley area residents wrote The Greeley Tribune newspaper, very angry that they were not issued refunds for the punch cards they had purchased and never given the chance to use.
It was sold in June of 2001 by property owner Janet Jerome to Longmont realtor Donovan Glassburn. It functioned as a church for a short while. Half of the building is now occupied by a liquor store.
