The Ogden Theatre has greatly benefited from Denver's economic boom. Prior to 1995, this beautiful old movie house sat vacant along Colfax Avenue until a local concert promoter snatched it off the market, restored it to its former luster, and started hosting popular musical acts. Capitol Hill now pulsates with the latest in music, as the 1000 seat venue hosts a wide array of artists. Past performances have included the Smashing Pumpkins, Morphine, and James Taylor. The surrounding area can be sketchy, so ask a security guard for a late night escort if you are alone. Parking can be a nightmare.
