Hollywood Posters, A Colfax Avenue Fixture, Is Closing After 35 Years - The Denver Post

A poster promoting "The Big Sleep" rests against a wall as John Caruso, owner of Hollywood Posters works at his shop in Denver on Thursday.

"I started coming here back when Colfax was nice and grimy," said Dwayne Lance Bodenhemier, a 48-year-old Denver native who has been shopping at Hollywood Posters since 1983 . "I love it because it feels like a closet." Some of the 15,000 movie posters in other the inventory of Hollywood Posters, 326 E. Colfax Ave. in Denver. (Special to The Denver Post) Three bookstores and a record store formerly dotted a single block of East Colfax between Grant and Logan streets, just east of the Capitol building, Caruso said. "The record store guy used to play 'Smoke on the Water' all day on his bass guitar and it would drive me crazy, but it was a great block. It was very different," he said. That's clear from looking at the block, which has seen other longtime businesses, including Wolfe's Barbeque, Jerry's Record Exchange and Taki's Japanese restaurant, close in the past five years.
