The Egyptian Theatre is surrounded by urban legends and history that makes this building a tour of Boise history and a cornerstone of the society scene.

In the early 1920's Leo Falk was worried about getting customers downtown to his upscale department store, Falk's ID. The neighborhood was surrounded by rowdy bars and brothels and the upscale customers he wanted were afraid or ashamed to come downtown to shop at his store. Mr. Falk decided to build a theatre near his store to try to "upscale" the neighborhood and thus allowing (hopefully) the customers he wanted to come downtown to shop.
