Temple Hoyne Buell Theater

-A A +A
1991, Beyer, Blinder, Belle, master plan; Van Dyke and Johnson, interiors

Named for the Denver architect and developer whose fortune posthumously helped fund it, this state-of-the-art theater is a 2,834-seat reincarnation of the municipal auditorium's old theater and basketball and wrestling arena. Colorado quartzite lines the walls and the proscenium arch of an interior accented with snazzy blue and purple neon ribbons. The three-level atrium lobby with outdoor balconies is enclosed in glass curtain walls. The Buell is home to the Colorado Ballet and DCPA's Best of Broadway touring presentations.
