This is a beautiful old theater. It is beautifully maintained, the acoustics are awesome, it's well staffed and managed, and perfectly located in the heart of downtown Boise. It's just a shame that the concert we attended was so darn bad. But that's not the...More

Boise benefits from the fabulous restoration of this early Twentieth Century theater by the Hardy family. Now one can attend venues from opera to jazz, from literary readings to ski specialty shows with occasional film classics at the Egyptian. Watch the marquee and the newspapers...More
