I always forget that the Mayan is as wonderful in the inside as on the outside; Amazing Art Deco theater on National Register of Historic Places; specializes in independent and best of all films; has a full bar on the upstairs with reasonable prices; very friendly and accommodating staff

Very Menver and wacky architecture for the setting. I'm sure a local historian has a great explanation for it. Odd little find that plays great art/independent films to keep the South Broadway scene alive and open-minded and liberated.

Its architectural style is Art Deco Mayan Revival. There are 3 theaters, a snack bar, a small bar area upstairs. It specializes in... More

This is a very old theater which has been remodeled to look exactly like it looked in its hey day. The seating however, has been made more comfortable and raked a little.

The Mayan is one of my favorite old cinemas. It's intimate which is perfect for viewing independent films. The owners have taken care of the historic building which brings a rich nostalgia to your experience.

Quaint and fun little theater for watching Independent movies. The wife and I have been several times over the years. You can have wine with your popcorn. Also get there early it fills up fast. We've always made it but it seems small enough yet popular enough for people to be turned away. Just a fun and unusual date place.... More

If I ever leave Denver, I'll be buying plane tickets to come back and see a movie at the Mayan. The theater is a beautiful example of the theaters in the past, and they show indie movies to boot. Everything about the Mayan I love. There's even some extra goodies at the snack bar (although I admit I'm a soda... More

I love this little theater, incredible indie gems and a full bar. The seats can be a little uncomfortable but its so pretty that it makes it worth it.

On occasion while visiting with family in Denver we go to the Mayan theater to see films. It shows better-than-average films, akin to an art house for friends of cinema.
