Art for Everyone

The Denver Theatre District enlivens a 16-block area of downtown Denver through interactive, immersive and experimental arts and culture events and experiences. We provide creatives with a platform and financial support for sharing their work.

Many of our events and programs, such as Night Lights Denver and Understudy, become woven into the fabric of downtown or spark ideas and trends in other cities.

We formed the Denver Theatre District to bring light, art and activity to the streets of downtown Denver. The DTD launched as a public-private partnership backing the idea that managed outdoor media could support downtown activity and bring exciting unique urban experiences to the public. Over the years the DTD became a key participant in the downtown environment and a force in Denver’s artistic community.

we give people a reason to come downtown, be part of the city and have fun.


The DTD leaves a lasting impact on the Denver and artistic community through a revenue share model that is the first of its kind in the nation. Our media companies sell corporate advertising on the static and LED screens located throughout the district. We take a revenue share from those sales to fund art and cultural activities for the public.

What’s Next



Night Lights Denver

Night Lights Denver is a permanent way for the Denver Theatre District to support innovative artists with an experimental platform while attracting people downtown to enjoy a free, unique experience.

Our vision for this project is that Night Lights Denver truly becomes ‘the people’s projector,’ encouraging Denver to participate and contribute – including the international, national and locally-based artists we pay for commissioned artworks, schools, and people walking through the district.

For Showtimes, Current Artworks, and more, please visit

Shows run Tuesday – Sunday nights, starting approximately 30 minutes after sunset and looping until midnight. All programs are FREE and appropriate for all-ages.

Night Lights Denver is located at the Daniels and Fisher Tower in Downtown Denver, 1601 Arapahoe Street.

Night Lights Denver partners include Downtown Denver Partnership, Orange Barrel Media and the Daniels & Fisher Tower.
