The Egyptian Theatre is Boise's Premier Historical Theatre located right in the heart of Downtown Boise. Its hard to miss on the corner of Capitol and Main. The website describes The Egyptian Theatre as a preforming arts & movie venue. A center for concerts, opera performances, guest speakers, film festivals & movie premiers.

The Theatre opened for business with “Don Juan” on April 19, 1927. It has been through some changes over the years from "the Fox" in the 30s, to the ADA in the 40's. The Egyptian name caught up in the late 1970s and has been the same ever since.

There was a major renovation project that went on back in 1999, commissioned by the Hardy Foundation, Inc.; Project Architect, Gregory A. Kaslo, AIA. The attention to Egyptian architectural detailing is astounding. They had to close due to the pandemic for quite a while and during the time they made the place even better. From careful restorations to make sure the historic integrity remained to revamping into more energy efficient and green practices.

They recently updated the list of Classic Halloween movie showings and I am definitely looking forward to a fun and nostalgic night out with some of these.
