The Idaho Theater, a second-run and B-picture house during the 1950’s, was operated by Demordaunt and Drennen, who also owned the local Nuart Theater.
The theater was very narrow but was still equipped to play CinemaScope, probably just to increase the number of available movies. Sometimes the projectionists would squeeze the picture in slightly so Frank Sinatra became even skinnier.
The Idaho Theater, like most small-town theaters in Idaho, was non-union and hired high school students as projectionists for economic reasons.
In the summer of 2002 the building was empty after being occupied over the years by a variety of businesses. Part of the canopy with empty bulb sockets can still be seen over the entrance to the theater.
