The historic Bluebird Theater is one of Denver’s most loved live-music venues, hosting nearly 250 groundbreaking, up-and-coming, and local acts each year. Considered a community anchor, the Colfax on the Hill neighborhood association lovingly calls the surrounding neighborhood The Bluebird District. Opened in 1914 and originally named after John Thompson, prominent Denver grocer and druggist, the theater was Denver’s first theater designed specifically for screening films. It became the Bluebird Theater in 1922 under the ownership of Denver movie mogul Harry Huffman. In 1994, the Bluebird was restored and transformed into a mecca for local and up-and-coming acts traveling through Denver. The theater is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is recognized for its architecture, statues, sound, and intimacy. It features tiered flooring and a balcony overlooking the room. In 2006, AEG Live Rocky Mountains began operating the Bluebird, making significant upgrades to the stage, lights, and overall sound quality.
