The show will begin shortly

The Tattered Cover Bookstore’s Colfax Ave. location opened as the Bonfils Memorial Theater in 1953 and its productions featured such luminaries as Kevin Kline, David Ogden Stiers, Joan Van Ark, Julia Child and Paul Winfield. For a bit more history, have a look here.

These theater chairs and several others, testament to the building’s history, sit in a little reading pit. Relax – the show is about to start.
