We were there recently for the Earls of Leicester and really enjoyed the venue. I had called and purchased tickets a few weeks before our trip and the guy I spoke to was very nice. When we picked them up at the will call, I was surprised when he said, "Hi, I'm who you talked to on the phone"! Very... More

We went to a see Patty Griffin the other night and were very disappointed in our seats. What appears to be a good seat in the seating chart can be horrible because of the stepped floors. If you get a seat at the back of any step, you will not be able to see the stage through the people in... More

Love the Boulder Theater! I love music and the Boulder Theater is fantastic! Small, intimate, floor in on a grade and good acoustics!

Best sounding venue in Boulder with a great Art Deco vibe. Don't miss seeing a show here! The best show to see is DeVotchKa on Halloween every year.

Good place to see bands coming through Boulder. Small venue so everywhere offers a good view of the stage.

My wife and I saw a concert here and it was a great venue. The show was mainly acoustic and the sound traveled nicely. The staff was very courteous. There is a bar in the auditorium itself, so if you get thirsty, you don't have to go far. I liked the 50's vibe the place had going, especially one the... More

I've seen two international acts in this theater. Both were first class! The theater holds 1000 Max. seating/standing and the floor is tiered so "there isn't a bad seat in the place". There's a nice Bar/Restaurant right next door, "George's", for pre-concert food and beverages from which you enter directly into the theater when the doors open!

They have great seating and sell alcohol - what more can you ask?! Check out an E-Town radio taping for a nominal ticket price. We've seen some great shows including Radio Head where they played after the show for 20 minutes or so.

Love the vibe and look of this venerable old gal. The art deco facade and interior detail are a show by themselves. This theater draws an eclectic mix of shows with great crowds and atmosphere. I have enjoyed every show that I've attended here and think its a really cool venue well worth checking out. And check out Shine Restaurant... More

Went to see Los Lonely Boys at the Boulder Theater - great show and wonderful venue. Just the right size - enough tables and chairs and lots of standing room - up close to the stage so you really felt like the show was being performed 'just for you' . Good wait staff - there is a restaurant right next... More
