Speakeasy Movie Theater

Once a funky, eclectic theater in the basement of the historic, 1909 brick schoolhouse that now houses the Breckenridge Grand Vacations Community Center and Summit County South Branch Library, the Speakeasy Movie Theater moved to a contemporary new space when the building was renovated in 2015. The original theater opened in 1998, back when the schoolhouse was owned by Colorado Mountain College. Now it has its own entrance in an addition at the north end of the building, and the cinema itself occupies a space that once held the historic indoor swimming pool. The Speakeasy facility is managed by Breckenridge Creative Arts, who partners with film programmer Karin Litzmann on its operation. Now offering digital picture and sound, the 150-seat theater screens first-run commercial titles as well as classic, independent, and art house films.
