It was general admission seating so we were in line for 45 minutes, then waiting for the opening act for another hour. We went a got good balcony seats. The theatre... More

We caught a show at the Boulder Theatre in the end of August. What I liked about the venue was the openness inside, with a multi tier floor that made it easy to see the stage. An upstairs wraps around in a horseshoe above the main floor. The old style decor of the theatre is still intact. There isn't a... More

Boulder Theater is a classic. Perfect for a private Christmas party which we attended last night. The band "Nacho Men" was fantastic. Guests danced non-stop! Fantastic entertainment and socializing. Upcoming events "John Water'sChristmas" ... Located near Pearl Street across from the "Happy Holidays" decorated Court House which is lit up at night. Walking along Pearl Street Mall in December is... More

What a hoot! Great MC, amazing films, groovy vibe. Not sure where the real seats are... These need to go back to whatever church they were borrowed from. Yikes. We were instructed to jump out of our seats after every film for ovations. Otherwise I'd have been crippled by the programs end. Super sad that I missed the Zombies here... More

We saw a live recording of a podcast here, overall, it was just a 'fine' venue. Nothing drawing us back to it, but also nothing driving us away. Pros: Beautiful and charming location, great aesthetics, nice staff, great drink selection/prices Cons: Noticable smell, poor (but modular) seating arrangements, vandalized bathrooms

Our first time in the Boulder Theater in downtown Boulder CO. Hard to find a parking space close, but we were able to finally park in a city parkade a few blocks away. We had purchased our tickets ahead at the theater and picked out 1st row balcony near center, great seats! There is a bar at the back (nice... More

First time visiting this theater and who better to see than Greg Allman. Great show. General standing isn't too bad. Small enough venue you really get a great anywhere in the house. Location is perfect.

The music sounded GREAT, and it was nice to have a bar right in the theater, but it would have been nice if I could have SEEN the performers. I flew from Salt Lake City to stare at the back of peoples' heads. NOT COOL. The way they place the seats, they're not staggered (that would have helped) and although... More

This was the first movie theatre, (it used to show movies also) where you could have a drink and watch a movie. Seemed fun at the time. It still is for their live venues, which always seem very intimate as it is such a small theatre. Only wish the seats were more comfortable.

We came to the Boulder Theatre for the Infamous Stringdusters concert, got there early in cold rainy weather and instead of waiting outside decided to go next door to Georges Bar for a brew.
