Foothills Commercial Builders Completes Construction on The Elaine Wolf Theatre in Denver

Denver, CO (OPENPRESS) March 22, 2012 –The Elaine Wolf Theatre is, for the most part, unrecognizable after the extensive remodel completed by Foothills Commercial Builders. The movie screen, flooring, curtains, orchestra pit, bathrooms, lighting booths, offices, even the air conditioning units have all been replaced, and/or updated. By adding a mezzanine level, as well as an elevator tower to access the upper level, the seating in the theatre increased from 295 to 415.  This new design allows for 12 dedicated wheelchair accessible spaces, with the option of converting the main floor of the theatre to accommodate 20 more.  Three additional fire exits were added to insure the safety of the larger and more diverse audience.  The lobby walls are now covered with black walnut panels, found discarded in a Denver warehouse in 2011.  The panels originally lined the walls of the historic United States National Bank Building, which was built in 1920, and were restored for the Wolf Theatre after nearly 100 years.  Jerusalem Stone from a quarry in Israel, sold locally in Denver, covers the entire façade of the elevator tower.

The new marquis awning and the electronic message sign at 350 S Dahlia St. are now lit, and The Wolf Theatre in the Mizel Arts and Culture Center at the Robert E Loup Jewish Community Center in Denver is officially open for business. Elaine Wolf, through the Melvin and Elaine Wolf Foundation, donated upwards of two million dollars to remodel the ageing theatre.  The project was completed by locally owned Foothills Commercial Builders, and R3 Design Architecture, out of Broomfield, CO.
