The former Neighborhood Flix Cinema & Café at Lowenstein Theater (2526 East Colfax Ave.) reopened its doors on Nov. 4, 2010, under a new name to help kick off the 33rd Starz Denver Film Festival, running from November 3-14.
Under its new name, Denver FilmCenter/Colfax is the new home of the Denver Film Society and opens a little more than five years after St. Charles Town Company worked with Denver Urban Renewal Authority (DURA) to purchase, restore, and redevelop the vacant Lowenstein Theater.
St. Charles Town Company received the 2006 Community Preservation Award from Historic Denver for its work on the Lowenstein Theater Complex, which also is home to the Tattered Cover Book Store and Twist & Shout Records.
In 2009, Tavern Hospitality Group purchased the former Neighborhood Flix Cinema & Café space located beneath the parking garage at the Lowenstein Theater Complex. Denver Film Society signed a two-year lease with purchase options from Frank Schultz, co-owner of Tavern Hospitality Group in October 2010.
