Denver has long been teased with talk and rumors to restore the luster of a local gem, the Historic Elitch Gardens Theatre. Now, its for real. Thanks to a city that believes arts and education is good business, the restoration can begin.
The Historic Elitch Theatre celebrates its 120th anniversary in 2011. The City of Denver’s Office of Economic Development has awarded the Elitch Theatre a grant for $425,000 to restore the interior.
