The Backdoor Theatre (BDT)is a small independent movie theater operating out of the Nederland Community Center (NCC). BDT is a
501c3 organization founded in 2003 to show first run movies every Friday and Saturday night.  Saturday matinees are for the hearing impaired.
Additionally, BDT provides performance and rehearsal space for local schools, community theater groups, and donates space to non-profits and schools for special movie showings. The Theater is also host to an annual independent film festival, local independent film showings during the Frozen Dead Guy Days festival and special events such as NedX, a forum showcasing female authors. The Theater is housed within the Nederland Community Center, a former K-12 school repurposed as a Community Center in 1998. BDT utilizes the former High School auditorium, originally built in 1954  During the early years of operation, the theater produced live plays, hosted Creed Repertory Theater, Chamber groups from Colorado Symphony, and a Classical Music Concert series
