Information for this tour was contributed by Grant Smith.

The Cooper-Highland circuit of Denver [1] opened the Flick Theatres on 22 December 1976 with both 300-seat auditoriums [2] showing "The Seven Per-Cent Solution." The theaters, located across from the Trolley Theatres at Trolley Square, featured "lavish draperies in the main auditoriums, as well as the rich-looking, expensive carpeting in the lobby area." [1]

In about 1982, Mann Theatres purchased the Flick Theater. [3] Carmike Cinemas acquired the theater in the mid-1990s. The theater closed permanently about 23 April 1998 and the space was converted to retail.
