Where does the name Isis Theatre come from?

In 1912, The Webber Building in downtown Aspen was converted into a movie house by the Aspen Women’s Civic Improvement League. They showed silent films, held minstrel shows and nicknamed the space the Isis Theatre in deference to the goddess Isis.

Isis was the Egyptian Goddess of Magic. She was originally associated with the throne of Egypt, which contained magical power because it could turn a prince into a king. Later, Isis “absorbed the attributes of most other goddesses and some gods and became a supreme deity, famous for her curing and redemptive powers” (Lesko, 155)

Can I rent a screen at the Isis Theatre?

Yes you can! All screens are available for rental. The rates are as follows:

  • $1,500 for any theater in evening, $1,000 for matinees
  • Birthday parties – flat $500 fee for up to 25 people (if more $12/additional head) done outside of theater operating hours

Can I rent the Isis Theatre for my event or birthday party?

Yes! All screens at the Isis are available for rent. Please contact in order to submit a formal rental request.
