1 person favorited this theater
This castle-like building was built primarily as a lodge hall but once played silent movies. Tourtellotte and Company, responsible for the Idaho State Capitol Building, designed it in the early 1900s. Tourtellotte, a prominent Idaho architect, along with his partner Hummell, would later design Boise’s Egyptian Theatre and the Gorby Opera Theatre in Glenn’s Ferry.
The building was put on The National Register of Historic Places in 1976 with its style listed as medieval revival. A vintage photograph shows that it was once called the Star and is across the street from a more modern theatre called the Star, which is also on the National Register.
