Historic Denver theater to close after 97 years!

The Esquire Theatre in Denver, known for showing independent films, will be shutting down this summer. Landmark Theatres made the announcement that the theater located at 590 Downing St. will close its doors by July 2024.

Since 1927, the Esquire has been a popular spot in Denver’s Capitol Hill neighborhood. Landmark Theatres acquired the theater in 1980 and has been running it even after selling the building in 2021.

Despite the support from the Esquire Theatre ownership team, Landmark Theatres President Kevin Holloway stated that they have decided to close the Landmark Esquire Theatre as they assess the market and their long-term business strategy. However, Landmark’s other theaters like the Mayan Theatre, Chez Artiste, and The Landmark at Greenwood Village will remain open to serve the area.
