This white hulk of a building, with its "Classic Revival" architecture, looks like it should belong in Washington DC rather than Colorado. Built in 1923 for the amazingly low sum of just over $424,000, it, over the years, has brought entertainment to the masses. With a seating capacity of over 8,000, it still attracts concerts, lectures, boxing matches and auctions. Dining options during the day can be found in the City Auditorium Cafe (7am-2pm Tue-Sun).
This intimate theater can house up to 550 people, all with perfect views of the stage. The theater is home to a diverse range of musical and theatrical performances, encompassing everything from stand-up comedy to bluegrass and jazz performances. The theater is also a perfect venue for large private and corporate events; call for more details.
As the only comedy club in Colorado Springs, it attracts some of the best comics on the circuit. In the past Jerry Seinfeld, Ellen Degeneres and Sam Kinison have graced its stage. The owner likes to mix the acts up so each week changes from straight stand-up to improv to the amazingly popular hypnotist shows. A small kitchen serves finger food such as nachos, chicken wings and cheese sticks. A full bar is available. Reservations are strongly recommended. Check the website for the schedule of shows.
