Holiday Theater, Denver CO 1997

This storefront theatre was originally built as the Egyptian Theatre in 1914. Eventually it became part of the Atlas Theatre Company chain. In 1953 it was renamed Holiday Theatre, and continues with its script marquee today, although since closing as a movie theatre in the 1980’s, it is was used as a restaurant until around 2009.

In October 2021 plans were proposed to reopen the Holiday Theatre in December 2021 and it will be used for concerts, films and lectures.

If this listing is up to date, the building is currently occupied by a Mexican restaurant.

I agree. I don’t know which one is more up to date. The Google photo showed Potzcuaro’s Restaurant, or something close to that.

The two buildings look the same.

Haven’t visited that neighborhood in a long time, but here’s a view of the marquee – all that was left of the theater – in 1997:

I have driven by the Holiday, the marquee say new retail coming soon. The front entrance has been boarded up and painted black.

The seats, screen, stage, and even 2 simplex projectors (less lamphouses) are still there (don’t ask). There was a theatre group that was going to open it, but it fell through. The owners don’t want to change the usage/zoning, and would love someone to come in and turn it back into a theatre. Any takers? Man, if I had millions of dollars…

Motion Picture Herald, Jan. 31, 1953: “Civic Theatres are remodeling the Egyptian, and will rename it the Holiday.”

Denver’s Museum of Contemporary Art announced today that it would buy the Holiday and change it into a showplace for concerts, film, lectures and artist conversations starting in December. That’s according to an article in today’s Denver Post.
