The Ute Theater is an event center owned and operated by the City of Rifle. After an extensive renovation project the Ute was opened to the public in May 2014. With restored Art-Deco features, an expanded stage, removable seating for over 300 people, and state-of-the-art audio-visual capabilities, the Ute is available for public and private events including concerts, performances, films, community celebrations, wedding receptions, birthday parties, and more. Book the Ute for your event by contacting Don Chaney, City of Rifle Cultural and Special Events Manager. The Ute is supported by the New Ute Theater Society (NUTS), a community group dedicated to the development of cultural programming and fundraising for Ute events.
