We attended a screening of a documentary film, "Bravo." The theatre had a nice lobby with refreshments. The seats in the balcony were comfortable with sufficient rise to allow full view of the screen from the center aisle and one off center. The decorations are very interesting. It is quite unique.

Sat in the orchestra seating area, which offers comfortable seats, but they are all on the same level. We had no trouble seeing the stage and the performer. Each seat has a built-in drink/cup holder, which I began to be an annoyance toward the end of the evening because my forearm rested on it partially. The sound and lighting for... More

The Egyptian Theater offers live theater in a gorgeous setting. The house is small enough to surround you with and intimate theater experience. Choices vary so keep an eye out of offerings.

I can imagine the Egyptian being the coolest place in town in its heyday. It's unquestionably the oddest theatre that you'd expect to find in Boise, ID, but definitely the coolest. Is it the nicest one? No. But its decor is a throwback to when going to the movies was cool and something to get dolled up for. Movies are... More

Another fun evening enjoying a Boise downtown classic experience. Whether it's for a film festival or classic movie night, the Egyptian delivers. For some reason the crowd's always great!

The sphinxes of gold at curtain-side set a unique stage where operas, lectures, movies and other performances all can assume a comfortable ambience. This perfectly renovated 1930s space moves into the Twenty-first Century with historical significance as well as beauty to match any stage in the world, yet one feels as if she/he is near and involved with whatever is...

Not only that, but the Egyptian Theatre is home to a wide variety of interesting events in Boise. I've been there for opera performances, movies, and a comedy show. It's an interesting building, and worth checking out.

The Egyptian has been a Boise landmark since it opened. It harkens back to the golden age of cinema. The interior is over the top. They play current films and concerts there.
