though it may not be ideal for rock concerts, it is a great place to go to a premier, watch an acoustic act, a play, recital, or anything of that nature! they always have fun events and premiers here!

Friends of mine helped restore the place many years ago. At one time the city was gonna knock it down, lucky for all of us it's still there. Concerts take place there, good movies and Matt Damon previewed one of his movies there.

This theatre was built in the 20s in the Egyptian style and was lovingly restored over twenty years ago to its former glory. It has been maintained in excellent condition since. It hosts special events, including classic old films and the Idaho Opera w;hich I recently attended. It is a great place to see opera because it is so intimate with the live orchestra and the singers.

The French are quiet in their movie theatres. Not a whisper or light. It is an experience to treasure. The Flicks does not appeal to children so that adds to the quiet and the viewing enjoyment. The selection of films is outstanding from the best and latest to the art films. :You are able to have a snack, a glass of wine, or a light meal in the friendly little lobby or exterior courtyard prior to or after the film.

Beautiful art-deco theater with original organ. Used to show first run movies, but decided not to compete with Edwards. Now usually used for an occasional concert or special event.
