The Cooper-Highland circuit of Denver built the twin-screen Elks Cinema in the old Elks Lodge on South Temple Street. The theater may have opened a few weeks after 22 December 1976, which is when the theater chain opened the Flick at Trolley Square. [1]

In 1979, the Utah/U.S. Film Festival (which later became the Sundance Film Festival) was held at the Elks Theater. [2]

The Elks Cinema closed after 1985. [3]
