Here's a glimpse inside our wonderful theatre. Built in 1933 -- during the construction of Hoover Dam -- it was the only air conditioned building near the construction site. So workers from the Dam would pay 25c for a ticket to a movie and come into the theatre to sleep and thereby escape the 120 degree heat down in the canyon where the Dam was being built. Due to Desi's TLC, the Boulder Theatre is now up to code, state-of-the-art and very happy too! She's home to non-profit Boulder City Ballet Company.
