References to the Cozy Theatre can be traced back to at least 1924 from stories in the Twin Falls Daily News. It is most likely the same theater, which was referred to in a 1913 article that said the Maze Theatre had been purchased by Charles Kalina and would be remodeled into a new theater. A later article said that Mr. Kalina ran the Cozy Theatre for about four years.

The Cozy Theatre was closed during the 1940’s, as a news article in the Times-News referred to it as the ‘old Cozy Theatre’. It was later taken over by Harris-Voeller Theatres who ran the Ramona Theatre, which was located directly across the street. Its newspaper ad on January 1, 1956 read: ‘This theatre will be closed during January’. February came and there were still no newspaper ads for the Cozy Theatre. It appears that it never opened again, leaving only the Ramona Theatre and the Moon Glo Drive-In as Buhl’s only theaters. The building is the second store front south of the alley, home in 2011 to the Body Works.
