This article about the Scottsbluff area’s theater history, from the Scottsbluff Star-Herald of January 3, 2016, notes that the Egyptian Theatre opened in October, 1927.

An accompanying photo shows a remnant of the Egyptian’s decoration that still exists on an interior wall of the Midwest Theatre, so at least part of the original building must have survived the March 5, 1945, fire to be incorporated into the new theater.
