Just found this site, great comments and memories.I was
lucky enough to find the 812(Rocky Horror/Yellow Sub)and
then the Dream.Both places always gave great memories of
good times(Mty High'68).Many Years later I was lucky/ unlucky enough to be assisting the demolition co.
after they took possesion.
I was asked what I might like from the theater after doing
the owners a favor.I could not believe they were going
to destroy everything!I told them the seats could have
been auctioned in the parking lot along w/doors,lites,etc. The demo crew was from out of town-
didn’t know anything about either theaters history or
importance to locals.Long story short- I rescued all that
I could, some light fixtures,the carved solid redwood
double front doors, a single door (w/porthole),also the
carved vine uprights and crossbeam that were holding up
the balcony over the snackbar.(paid crew $100.00 to rem-
ove structural beam)I also took cedar shakes from the out side wall and one of the outside porch railings. I
wanted to save the whole theater- very sad when the
excavators came and started putting it in dumpsters.
I think people should know that some of the last remaining remnants of the 812 Cinema and the Dream Theater have been saved,and built into a beautiful barn house next to the Kootenai River, Mt.
I’m sad to say we will be putting the house on the
market in April. A great opportunity for someone else!
