interior of Webber Theater (Kitty's South), September 2012

Westword today quoted our 2011 article on the Webber Theater, so it seemed worth putting up this grab-shot of the interior during taken another spate of work in September 2012

this shot shows the lobby structure mostly removed, and debris being cleared from the gaping void of the slope-floored original theater space; the old proscenium is dimly visible

like Westword, we have no news on the building's fate

description from the 2010 Doors Open Denver program:

This bridge-trussed building that now contains an antique store was one of Denver’s first automobile shops: a Chevrolet dealership. Its large beams and Spanish-style arched windows add to the antique feel. An additional location on South Lipan that stores salvaged antique architectural components was built in 1920 as a construction material warehouse, using iron trusses recycled from a railroad trestle and marked Carnegie Steel.
