THE ANIMAS CITY THEATRE, or The ACT as the locals call it, is a Movie Theatre and Live Music Venue located in Downtown Durango. The ACT shows independent films daily, hosts live music - both local and nationally & internationally touring acts, as well as hosts the Durango Independent Film Festival, other events, and private rentals. The ACT features a full bar, so you can enjoy a movie with a glass of wine, beer, or cocktail! You can also order food from Cuckoo's next door and enjoy it while watching your film.
The ACT shows National Theatre Live Productions, which are live theatrical performances filmed in high definition for cinemas, such as THE AUDIENCE, WARHORSE, and CURIOUS INCIDENT OF DOG IN THE NIGHTTIME. You'll have a front row seat to the best of London Theatre without leaving Durango, Colorado!
We also show fun, older movies every other Wednesday night at 7:30 PM, with a twist! It's our Quote-Along / Drink-Along series with films such as THE BREAKFAST CLUB, FOREST GUMP, SPACEBALLS, where you are encouraged to dress up, shout out your favorite lines along with the characters on screen, we even provide Drink-Along Suggestions for those who wish to add another layer of fun to the mix. We have trivia questions with prizes before the film starts and drink specials that go along with the movie, for example a Raspberry Beret cocktail to go with PURPLE RAIN!
For Live Music we have the best sound system in the four corners! We've hosted THE MOTET, LEFTOVER SALMON, EUFORQUESTRA,JOHN POPPER just to name a few!
