Fox Theater

Check out the stunning facade and marquee of the Fox Theater located in downtown La Junta. Built in 1912 as a playhouse, it was purchased in 1939 by the Fox Theater chain and converted to a movie theater with 800 seats. Twinned in the 1970s or 80s, the theater closed in the mid 2000s desperately needing repair. Reopened after extensive renovations in March 2008, the private owners have restored vibrancy to this historic theater, assisted by community volunteers. The interior now hosts two movie screens with showings nightly.

Lamar Theatre

Located in downtown Lamar, Colorado, the Lamar Theatre opened its doors on November 15th, 1946, as a single screen, 832-seat “High Art Deco” theatre. It was designed by the prominent Denver architect Charles Dunwoody Strong. The exuberant curved Art Deco forms of the colorfully lit facade and marquee beckon the visitor into a well preserved large-screen theatre for a classic night at the movies. Theatre-goers are captivated by the fluid forms of the colorful interior murals, recessed neon lighting, chrome details, mirrors, curved wall edges, and rounded corners, which are signature elements of Art Deco theatre design.

Picketwire Theater

Utilizing local stone quarried from nearby locations the WPA built this theater as a school gymnasium during the height of the Great Depression. Later modifications expanded the stage area and adapted the building for performance center use. The theater, now known as the Picketwire Center for the Performing and Visual Arts, has been serving the community of La Junta and the surrounding area for more than 60 years. Special concerts and theater productions are performed here throughout the year, and the Picketwire Players, a local community theatrical group, call the theater home. Occasionally the theater also hosts art exhibitions.
