The Gothic Theatre has an illustrious history. Started in the twenties, the theater was more than just a place for films, it was a place to meet friends and family. It was also the first theater in Denver to show talking movies. Today the grand art deco style of the theater is still dominant and it has now been turned into a world-class music center. In keeping with the move, the Gothic has installed state-of-the-art sound and light systems, doing justice to visiting bands like The Rebirth Brass Band.
