Opera Theatre (Official)
Firms: Tourtellotte & Hummel
Previous Names: Gorby Opera House
Opened as the Gorby Opera House in 1914, this was designed by Tourtellotte and Hummel, who would go on to design Boise’s 1927 Egyptian Theatre. Its location across from the local depot made it easy for vaudevillians taking the railroad into town.
It served as the town movie theater until the early-1990’s, and since 1994 its owners Rich and Connie Wills, with the help of volunteers and local players have kept its weekends busy presenting dinner theater and shows.
Seating is about 100 in the middle plus dinner seating on each side. The vintage seats are on rails, making it convenient to slide them around for community events. If you go, be sure to check out its 100-year old piano and other original features of the theater.
It was placed on the National Register Of Historic Places in 1982.
