The Ellie Caulkins Opera House, which opened on September 10, 2005, is located in Denver, Colorado as part of the large Denver Performing Arts Complex. It seats 2,225. The Caulkins family pledged $7 million towards the enhancement of the lyric opera house and adjacent public spaces which were constructed inside of the Newton Auditorium.History of the theatreThe Municipal Auditorium, the largest in America except for Madison Square Garden in New York, was completed in time to host the Democratic National Convention in 1908. Mayor Speer and the Chamber of Commerce raised $100,000 to celebrate the July 7 grand opening of the Auditorium with Denver's first national political convention, when William Jennings Bryan was nominated to run for President for the third time.Originally, the building was a multi-purpose structure: it accommodated concerts, operas, theatrical shows, conventions, basketball, auto shows and even circuses, with flags flying from its domes and light bulbs outlining its pediments, cornice, and corners. The proscenium of the original building was designed to be portable so as to create different-sized spaces for different events. When the proscenium was in place, the building was a 3,326 seat theatre with an extraordinarily large back stage area. When the proscenium was raised, increasing the seating capacity to 12,000, the stage and backstage area became large enough to hold circuses and rodeos.For several years in the 1920s and 30s, Music Week was an annual event in Denver. Various communities of the state presented musical programs and most of the performances were in the Auditorium. An opera or operetta was commonly included in the offerings.In 1921, a company of Denver musicians performed Flotow's Martha in May; of special historical significance was the fact that the two performances were broadcast by radio station 9ZAF, the first time ever that a full-length opera was broadcast.

Mile High Stadium was an outdoor multi-purpose stadium in the western United States, located in Denver, Colorado.It was built in 1948 for the Denver Bears baseball team, which was a member of the Western League during its construction. Originally designed as a baseball venue, the stadium was expanded in later years to accommodate the addition of a professional football team to the city, the Denver Broncos, as well as to improve Denver's hopes of landing a Major League Baseball team. Although the stadium was originally built as a baseball-specific venue, it became more popular as a pro-football stadium despite hosting both sports for a majority of its life.The Broncos called Mile High Stadium home from their beginning in the AFL in 1960 until 2000. The Bears, who changed their name to the Zephyrs in 1985, continued to play in the stadium until 1992 when the franchise was moved to New Orleans. The move was precipitated by the awarding of a Major League Baseball franchise to the city of Denver, and in 1993 the Colorado Rockies season opened in Mile High. The team played the 1993 and strike-shortened 1994 seasons in Mile High setting MLB attendance records while Coors Field was being constructed in downtown Denver.

The original building structure, harboring over 30,000 square feet of usable space, had been sitting vacant on the corner of 6th Ave. and Kalamath for over 5 years. Located just one block away from the Denver Santa Fe Art District and sitting on one of the busiest intersections in Denver, it was a great opportunity awaiting its next incarnation. The location and building were acting as a perfect "gateway" to Denver and the mountains. Tens of thousands of people passed by on a daily basis coming into Denver, and tens of thousands more passed it again as they headed west to experience Colorado's countless recreation opportunities.
Flash forward to early 2010, and enter the combined vision of Wink Inc. and The Public Works. Each company desired to grow their business with a physical location in the heart of Denver, and this space fit the bill. The two businesses cover a wide range of creative services but believed that finding a large building and finding other like-minded companies would create something special and important to the city of Denver. In just over 4 months, a desolate and worn out 'skeleton' of a building transformed into Denver's newest and best shared creative space. Creative and diverse tenants were found. Many partnerships were formed. Great things were happening.
Since opening in November of 2010, Battery621 has received instant attention. The entire floor plan was designed to maximize space usage and flexibility, allowing 621 to function as a premier place of business during the day, and a very unique event space after hours. Every aspect of the building has been looked at from the most progressive, creative, and sustainable angle to tell a unique story. We have taken a prominent corner of Denver from something of shame to a place that inspires creative spirit.
With all that said, we welcome you to Battery621. And you know the best part? We're not even done yet...
