Located in the small town of Victor, Colorado, Isis Theater was built in 1899 and featured live entertainment. Today it no longer features shows, but has been turned into a free museum with antiques, and nostalgic movie collectibles. The theater museum was purchased in 1985 by Betty Kennedy who turned Isis Theater into the museum that it is today.
Upon walking into Isis Theater, patrons are greeted with an abundance of movie related products. The stage is usually adorned with a theme centered on a former Hollywood star such as Elvis or Marilyn Monroe. The walls are adorned with movie posters paying homage to great actors and actresses such as James Dean, Clark Gable, Betty Davis, and others. Other items include costumes, movie set items, toys, figurines, dishware, and more.
The city of Victor is located at nearly 10,000 feet on the southwest side of Pikes Peak. The town is known for its turn of the century architecture, clean air, and crisp sunshine. There are several original buildings that bring to life its once thriving mining industry. Victor supplied many of the homes to the mining workers who contributed to the mining production facilities.
