The Dairy is not just an attractive venue, it has a costant stream of worthy plays and movies. The movies don't have long runs, so catch them while you can.

Huge parking lot (rare in Boulder now) that's free, great location, really beautiful interior, and access. Interesting films and shows, great community vibe.

Opening night performance of this intriguing play was a total triumph! Four stunning actresses portrayed four brave women who stood up against the aristocracy and for women's rights during the French Revolution. There's so much more toit than that, but this theater company consistently tackles...More

This is a cool place to go - music, plays, community lectures, off-the-beaten-path films. I've never actually gone to an art exhibit there, but usually some art is on display.
