Constructed in 1888 as offices and a tearoom, the Atlas Building was converted to a theatre in 1908. Master Wyoming architect, William Dubois, drew up the plans for the conversion, which called for seating of 550, a stage sufficient for the traveling companies of the time, a soda fountain, a penny arcade, and a confectionery parlor.

The upper floors, once used as offices, were transformed into a rooming house. After its conversion, the Atlas showcased Vaudeville acts, finally closing in December, 1929. It soon reopened as the Strand, a movie theatre that entertained audiences until 1955. The Pink Pony Nightclub, which operated in the lobby area, quickly replaced the Strand during the early 1960s. The Atlas’ auditorium saw little use until 1966 when the CLTP leased the building – and changed its name back to the Atlas -- for its Old Fashioned Melodrama productions. By 1971, the CLTP purchased the building. Today, the Historic Atlas, which seats about 250 people, is used both for the Old Fashioned Melodrama and for CLTP productions. Other groups, as well as private individuals, frequently rent the space for weddings, meetings and performances. The historic theatre is in need of major renovation, and this project is one of the CLTP’s major priorities. The Historic Atlas Theatre is located in the heart of downtown Cheyenne at 211 W. Lincolnway.
