Historic Ute Theater Re-Opens

On Friday, June 21, the historic Ute Theater in downtown Saguache will celebrate its Grand Re-Opening in great style with an entertainment -packed weekend of troubadours, tours, and tenors sure to live up to the theater’s reputation!

As many readers may know, this historic gem located at 410 4th Street changed ownership last year when Heidi D. Wong purchased it from Christine Gydesen. Wong and her dedicated team then began the arduous task of clean-up and restoration.
