The station opened in 2004 to replace the 14th & Stout station and 14th & California station, which were used for southbound and northbound trips on the D Line, respectively. These original stations were opened with the rest of the Central Corridor in 1994. In addition, the station is two blocks from a connection with the free MallRide shuttle bus service on the 16th Street Mall.

Theatre District/Convention Center was one of the first stations on Denver's light rail system with a 4-car platform. As part of the FasTracks plan that was approved by voters in 2004, most light rail stations in Denver have been upgraded to 4-car platforms. From 2004 to 2009, the station was known as Convention Center - Performing Arts station.
