OCRon commented about Lyric Theatre on Nov 20, 2014 at 10:19 pm

The 1935 opening above probably refers to the opening after the 1934 fire.

Stories and ads from the Avalanche Journal note that the Lyric Theatre goes back to 1917. (1918 ad in photo section).

On August 16, 1934 the Lyric was damaged in a fire and was closed. (Fire story in photo section).

The new Lyric, designed by S.B. Haynes, opened on January 20, 1935, with 510 seats.

The Lyric closed for the last time in March of 1964 and demolition began in January of 1965. (History and story of demolition in photo section).

OCRon commented about Boise Stadium 22 and IMAX on Nov 20, 2014 at 3:39 pm

A few years ago, I was on vacation in Boise, during the summer. While at the Edwards Theatre, I casually asked an usher how many people show up for the Thursday night premieres. Expecting him to say a few hundred, he said about a thousand or more. This was when I realized how big the Boise/Nampa/Meridian market is.
