Before its demise, the Best Theater was owned by a Mr. Charlie Taylor. It was equipped with a Wurlitzer type O organ. It was still open in 1927, but had closed by 1928.

The building survives in 2024 in use as offices for an insurance company.

The Colorado Weekly Record shows that the new home of the Best Theatre was being constructed in 1923. The building then occupied by the Colorado National Bank will be remodeled into the new Best Theatre. The big style “O” Wurlitzer will be one of the main attractions. The double piano has pipe and drum attachments to the straight pipe organ. A six foot Typhoon blower will be installed. There is a 10 or 11 foot lobby with tile floor and plaster walls. The box office is made of white marble with a black base and plate glass over the marble. There are French mirrored entrance doors with brass push rods and kick plates. - Colorado Weekly Record, June 1, 1923
