Arts Center & Theatre Feasibility Study


Durango Film contributes $2,000 to fund feasibility study for new Arts Center and Theatre.

What could become the latest state-of-the-art theatre for Durango Film is now in the planning stages. The new Steam Park will include facilities with seating for 300 where the festival can show films and provide office space for Durango Film. This space will replace the Durango Arts Center where Durango Film has currently been showing films for the Independent Film Festival and other events.

If you would like to participate and help make this possible, please make a donation to Durango Film to help offset the cost of study. For more information visit

At a time when spring skiing is at its finest, with area skiing at nearby Durango Mountain Resort, the now famous extreme Silverton Mountain Experience, and Wolf Creek Ski Area,  there isn’t a better time to take in the outdoors, take in films, and experience all that is Durango, Colorado.  It’s super easy to get here, just visit for flight information directly in and out of Durango.

See you at the movies!
