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.

Intimate move theatre in the center of Boulder, part of the wonderful Dairy Art Center. Plenty of one-site and street parking. This theatre has a terrific lineup of documentaries and music-specific films. Best avenue is a membership, yields great dividends such as discounts. Pretty good...More

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

A great place for community theater. We've attended some very interesting performances there. In some of the theaters, the seating can be quite cramped, especially it you;re tall.

Before this venue there really wasn't a place to enjoy various types of art offerings. It seems I'm (we) are there several times a month to see plays, films, art exhibits, rehearsals, and to hear jazz. The quality is always high, work is often refreshingly...More

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.

We went to see the one man comedy show "Baby Boomer Baby" and it was our first visit to the center. The size of the space was very intimate so you are close to the stage no matter where you sit. The show was not...More

I have mixed feelings about the Dairy Center but have enjoyed some of the functions I've attended. It's a nice place for local talent to perform a one woman show for instance. But after all of the remodelling, the seats in the theatre are very...More
