In 1881 silver magnate Horace Tabor built his Grand Opera House in Denver at Sixteenth and Curtis Streets. The venue's performances enthralled audiences for the next nine years, until a competing opera house opened on Broadway in 1890 and Tabor lost his fortune in 1893. This photo of the Tabor Grand Opera House building, taken when it was used as a movie house in 1905, shows a marquee that reads "The Money Changers."
