This is the Crown Jewel of Denver movie palaces....if you love cinema do NOT miss a trip to the Mayan. Located in the once hip & funky South Broadway neighborhood (it's now chic and chock full of sushi & fleece people) this is the rare movie joint where you can grab a beer or stiff cocktail while you enjoy top notch foreign and indy films from our friends at Landmark Theaters. It's a vintage place where you can feel the history of film in every pore which means you're not getting stadium seating on any of that fancy b.s. what you will get is great movies in a theater that still retains it's charms from the 30'2 & 40's. Trust me, I've been going here regularly since 2000 and I've seen over 150 movies there. Check it out.

A grand theater focusing on the finest in independent and foreign-language film. – In Short
Built in 1930, the Mayan is one of the country's three remaining theaters designed in the Art Deco-Mayan revival style. Restored in the mid-1980s, the three-screen house boasts two small theaters upstairs and a large auditorium below with a Dolby Digital sound system. The Mayan offers a full-service bar and two concession stations packed with high-end goodies including Ben & Jerry's Peace Pops, black and herbal iced teas, espresso drinks and popcorn.

Grinning From Another Dimension – The Mayan-- oh what memories I have of this theater that compare to none other....

When I was 20 years old, I went to see the psychedelic film Rainbow Bridge, starring Jimi Hendrix. That night I took a strong dose of mescaline- and before my very eyes the theater, already with a surrealist atmosphere of sinister grinning aztec and mayan faces looking down on the audience from every high corner, from another dimension - turned into a kaleidoscope of bizarre images. The audience took on a collective insane, hilarious, and paranoid character- and then the film- I could remember NOTHING of the film when it was over, except that PEOPLE FLEW in the film.

Years later, I moved into the Mayan neighborhood, and the theater had degenerated into a $1 movie house, and on many late afternoons I entertained myself in seats that had springs poking me in the butt- but it was swell anyway- I could hardly afford any other distractions.

Years later again, the theater was lovingly restored, and I've seen many a film there- without hallucinating or being poked in my glutimus maximus. The espresso bar is a nice touch, the films are good, its comfortable- and there is NOTHING LIKE IT anywhere else--

Its in the FACES- all still there, grinning. :-)

The Thinking Person's Theatre – The Mayan is one of the few theatres remaing that captures the old magic of movie-going: beautiful architecture, films worth watching, and a quiet and interested audience. The films selected for showing are of such consistent quality, that one can just pick a title at random. The snack bar is great: hot tea with honey, and a selection of popcorn toppings! Plus, the real bonus, no screaming kids or stunted adults screaming or commenting throughout the movie!
