The Lamar Theatre is located in Southeastern Colorado, in the town of Lamar. The Theatre opened its doors November 15th, 1946, as a single screen, 832 seat "High Art Deco" theatre. The auditorium seats 682 on the main floor and 150 in the balcony. The fantastic floral mural work, pastel color scheme, curved edges and corners, chrome, mirrors, glass blocks, terrazzo flooring, indirect cove lighting, neon, colored floodlights and large stylistic marquee are classic to the Art Deco style.
The Lamar was built by the Atlas Theatre Corporation, a company owned by Charles U. Yeager. The design and construction of the Theatre was given to a prominent Denver architect, Charles D. Strong. The Theatre is now owned and operated by the Ross family. They purchased the Lamar in December 1994. The Lamar is an architecturally unique theatre that is amazingly well preserved. It is the only theatre in the Lamar area and has been showing first run movies nightly for over 60 years.
