Will the Curtain Fall on the New Denver Civic Theatre?

By |

As of early this morning, there was no indication on the New Denver Civic Theatre’s website of the financial problems that could cause its doors to be closed today. The small, two-theater complex at 721 Santa Fe Drive owes more than $100,000 in rent and taxes, according to The Denver Post, citing a notice that says Evergreen National Bank is seeking repossession of the property back to the building’s landlord, Zbigniew “Greg” Mania. The backstory of the theater is a complex one of business partnerships and property ownership–and it has the owners of 1883 Productions wondering if they’ll be able to weather the battle. As the sole tenant of the 105-seat black-box theater, 1883 runs two burlesque shows, “Leadville or Bust” and “V Burlesque,” and hopes that if Mania takes control of the property, he will work out a deal with them to allow the shows to go on.
