Dairy Arts Center

CINEMA

Did you know that the Boedecker Theater is Boulder’s ONLY year-round arthouse cinema?

The Boedecker Theater opened within the Dairy Arts Center in 2010 as a first-run arthouse cinema. With an intimate seating capacity of 70, “the Boe” is the perfect place to see films not available at the commercial cinemas in a professional theater setting. Concessions, including alcohol, are available for purchase at every screening; our popcorn is a staff favorite!

With nearly 1,000 screenings per year, the Dairy Arts Center’s cinema programming is noted for excellence as well as diversity. From contemplative documentaries to quirky independent comedies and international dramas (we’ve shown films from over 65 countries since the pandemic!), there is something for everyone!

Our regularly scheduled films play Wednesday – Sunday and typically rotate between one narrative and one documentary feature throughout the week, with special programs generally taking place Sunday – Tuesday evenings, including cultural offerings like international ballet and opera screenings, Exhibition on Screen and National Theatre Live, or community partnerships and local showcases. Many films also feature “talkbacks*,” post film discussions led by film critics, community leaders, and professional experts so that you can get the most out of the cinema experience!

Community is what sets our theater apart. The Boedecker is home is to numerous series and festivals including Classics with Jeffrey Kash, Friday Night Weird, How to Watch a Movie, the Boulder Jewish Film Festival, Boulder Environmental/Nature/Outdoors Film Festival, and Mimesis Film Festival.
