Inside the Egyptian Theatre

We were at the Egyptian Theatre in downtown Boise twice yesterday. First, for rehearsal, then for the Opera Idaho Sings Christmas production. It's a theater that shows movies and stages music and small-scale plays and musical productions. Over the years, it's fallen into disrepair and been rescued a few times. The Egyptian opened its doors for the first time in 1927, complete with a pipe organ that is still there, and was used last night for the "sing along" ending of the show. More pictures of the interior at the "extras" page here.

  1. Egyptology was very popular back in the 1920s, wasn't it?
