Boulder Daily Camera | Flatirons Theatre on Boulder’s University Hill considered for historic designation

In its former, post-World War II life, the Flatirons Theatre building on Boulder’s University Hill was a two-story theater that, on opening day, projected the 1950 race-car flick “To Please a Lady,” starring Clark Gable and Barbara Stanwyk.

The original building — a private residence built in 1891 — had been razed to build the theater, which featured more than 1,000 seats split between the lower floor and the balcony, air conditioning and a nursery for fussy children. At the time, it cost $141,730.

On Tuesday, the Boulder City Council will review the Landmarks Board’s recommendation that the building on the southwest corner of 13th Street and College Avenue be designated as a landmark under the city’s Historic Preservation Code. The ordinance is up for a first reading, then the council will be able to ask questions and give feedback before the second reading and vote, scheduled for May 15.
