Movie buff Dave Woodhead opened his Lamphouse Theatre in Old Towne Twin Falls on March 3, 2000. The Times-News said the cinema would show foreign, art, documentaries and old movies. The first flick out of the gate in the converted warehouse was the 1998 German thriller “Run Lola Run”, but the films were diverse as one of Dave’s early presentations was Alfred Hitchcock’s “Rear Window”. The venue was created not to compete with local first-run theaters but to fill a niche, which was missing in Twin Falls. The theater, which also rented videos, planned to show a new program each week.

The Lamphouse Theatre closed on March 2, 2006 but Dave wasn’t out as he is a experienced Twin Falls businessman with other interests including the popular Woody’s Bar, which occupies the space of the old Lamphouse Theatre. On March 3, 2010 to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Lamphouse’s opening Dave put together for showing at Woody’s two-hours of trailers of films that showed at the Lamphouse Theatre during its 6-year run.
