  • I have mixed feelings about the Dairy Center but have enjoyed some of the functions I've attended. It's a nice place for local talent to perform a one woman show for instance. But after all of the rem...  more »
  • Basically it's lots of theatres. A big complex with a few bits of art dotted around. A long walk down from Pearl street and a big let down on what I was expecting. Free internet, cafe and Lois though ...  more »
  • Recently remodeled, this is a great venue for the arts. I actually wish that it was at least twice the size.  more »

  • The new performance space and reception hall are spacious and comfortable. The Boe frequently shows interesting films, occasionally with discussions with the filmmaker(s) following.
  • I have been here a few times now and each time was a different theater and felt like a great venue for the show.
  • The Dairy is awesome and the newly completed remodeling looks beautiful. Kudos to the architect! I have enjoyed the gallery and Boedecker movie theater but haven't caught a show in one of their new theatres yet. Can't wait!
  • This is a great resource for various arts and cultural programs. I'm most familiar with the Parlando School for the Arts (primarily a music school) that is located here, but whenever I'm at Dairy Center I get to see ballet and modern art students, community members gather for performances and shows. I love being around this kind of creative energy and very glad that Boulder supports this. The building is undergoing a lot of renovations (and as usual they are running longer then scheduled) - so something to be aware of, but I'm a fan of the changes they are making in the long term.
  • We just saw REVELS... way fun show!
