Enjoy first-run Academy Award winning films in the newly renovated Historic Jones Theater in Westcliffe, Colorado. At the end of 2014, we replaced the old “Peerless” carbon-arc 32-mm film projector with a state-of-the art digital projector. Another improvement is the installation of a hearing loop in the Jones Theater auditorium so that people wearing hearing aids can enjoy movies, plays, and music in the theater without distortion. For information about the hearing loop and how to use it, please click here: Hearing loop information.
