The 1927 Egyptian Theater is one of Idaho’s cherished historical landmarks, and is the city of Boise’s only remaining vintage single screen theater. After decades of use as a movie house, the Egyptian is expanding its community impact by becoming a live performance venue.
In service of this goal, Chicago Flyhouse was called in to inspect, repair, and replace the auditorium’s dangerously outdated and decrepit theatrical rigging system.
Working closely with staff engineers to bring the theater up-to-code and up-to-date, Flyhouse developed designs to increase the venue’s structural steel and to incorporate bracing to support modern lighting and scenery loads without marring the theater’s irreplaceable and singular architecture.
Flyhouse was happy to help the Egyptian return to its rightful place at the center of Boise’s arts community.
