Denver theater closing to catch up on rent

DENVER, Colorado ” A small theater in Denver is going dark Monday as it faces a deadline to pay more than $100,000 in rent and taxes.

The New Denver Civic Theatre is more than eight months behind on rent. The theater just south of downtown plans to close until at least July 6 to reorganize. The theater’s mortgage is held by Evergreen National Bank, which could repossess the two-theater property Monday. The bank posted a repossession notice Friday.

Right now the Civic Theater’s sole tenant is a burlesque cabaret. The Black-Box Cabaret told The Denver Post that it hopes to continue its “Leadville or Bust” show if the company can reach agreement with a new owner.
