We may not be Hollywood, but we sure do appreciate the place. Movie theaters abound in Boise and the rest of Idaho. And you can see art films, foreign films, and a host of eccentric offerings. The Flicks is where the art, foreign, festival, and small budget films end up. And we like it that way. The Flicks has its own special atmosphere. No giant, $15 tubs of popcorn here, although you can get popcorn. Much more popular are homemade cookies, pretzels, and burgers. Plus, you can get wine or beer and take it into the theater with you. So classy. The Egyptian is an old-timey theater, with a stage, a balcony, and at times, even an organ. Now frequently a venue for opera, authors, and other performances, movies are still on the agenda from time to time. Often, you can find showings of things like Extreme Skiing or the Wild Waters Film Festival (I just made those up, but you get the idea)at the Egyptian. It's a beautifully decorated building, and a landmark in historic Boise. Edwards, Regal, and Majestic show all the latest, current movies. Northgate, Reel, and Overland Park show older movies, the kind you might watch on DVD, or dollar specials. Great for the frugally minded. And never crowded.
