News About This Theater
- Oct 12, 2011 — Fixing the Pix
The 688-seat Pix Theatre opened on September 11, 1946 with Rita Hayworth in “Tonight and Every Night”. It later operated on and off as the Frontier Cinema. The Idaho Statesman said that attempts to restore the proposed re-named Majestic Theatre received a setback on July 31, 2003 when it was discovered that part of the roof had fallen in. Fortunately, the building was unoccupied at the time and the roof is repairable.
Before the damage there had been a $500,000 fund raising goal by the Majestic Entertainment Foundation, a non-profit organization, to restore the theatre, which closed in 2002. Community volunteers were very instrumental in the cleanup of the theatre and the foundation hopes that other citizens will buy bricks and tiles engraved with the donors names.
However by December of 2003 it had become evident that the cost of the damage, which is partially insured, would increase by almost twice the original goal. The Idaho Press-Tribune says that seating will be reduced to 300 to accommodate plans for a restaurant and venue for movies, live theater, music, comedy and other community events.
