This theater called the Schubert Theatre opened in 1920, and owned by Bud Schubert, was for many years the only movie house in this town of only a few thousand people. Mr. Schubert also owned the hotel across the street.

In the mid-1950’s, a competitor, for some inexplicable reason, built a new theater a few blocks away. The competing theater has been closed for many years while the Schubert is still open and called the Gooding Cinema.

Its full marquee has been removed and replaced by a smaller one, which sets flat against the front of the building.

My family moved to Gooding in 1953, I attended school 5th grade thru 9th Grade there. I have many fond memories while we lived in Gooding, one is the Saturday afternoon Matinee’s at the “Schubert Theater”…. I’m very thankful those fond memories that you were a part of in my life.

The NRHP registration form for the Schubert Theatre says that it was designed by Hugo Clausen.

Clausen was a Salt Lake City decorator who, like San Francisco’s Gale Santocono, sometimes did architectural design. His company decorated the Egyptian Theatre in Boise, Idaho, and Clausen himself painted murals in the Central Theatre in Ely, Nevada.
