Credits are about to roll on an East Colfax mainstay.

Hollywood Posters at 326 E. Colfax will close its doors for good in the next few weeks after 35 years in business. Shop owner John Caruso said a drop in sales is forcing his business to shut down.

“People just aren’t buying posters like they used to,” he said. “Half of the people have no money and half just browse and walk out of the store.”

Caruso said Hollywood Posters currently has a month-to-month lease for the space, which city records show is owned by C&L Acquisition LLC. Hollywood Posters has not set a final closing date, but Caruso said it could be anywhere between about two and six weeks away.

The poster shop will be the second business to close in recent weeks on the 300 block of East Colfax. Emilio’s Mexican Restaurant two doors west of Hollywood was shut down, owing the state nearly $12,000 in unpaid sales taxes.
