Entrepreneur, community actity activist and philanthropist, Richard “Dick” Klein’s lifetime of leadership has been marked by innovation, creativity and a commitment to his community.

Founder of Longmont’s K-Theatres Corp., Dick never shirked from a challenge and, in fact, embraced new technologies, including television, cable and video rental, that others suggested signaled the end to his beloved theater industry.

A life-long Rotarian and former city planning commissioner, Klein’s sense of duty extended beyond his personal businusiness to the welfare of every community he was part of.
