The beautifully restored 1920 Wilson Theatre, for special events, plays, weddings, and more. Tours available Monday through Friday, 9am-4pm.

Five years from now, Rupert’s Wilson Theatre will celebrate its 100th Birthday.

This incredible performance center, originally designed and built in 1920, has hosted vaudeville, musical performances, plays, and movies through many decades of Idaho history. In January 2000 a complete renovation began to bring the theatre back to life and its original splendor. In 2001 the Historic Wilson Theatre was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Over the past 15 years, no detail has been spared in re-creating the original art and architecture. The acoustical brilliance of this theatre will delight performers and audiences alike. A great venue has been created for the community of Southern Idaho and for all to enjoy from near and far.

Located on Rupert’s Town Square, the Theatre also offers ideal spaces for meetings, conventions, and art exhibits in an inviting setting. Please contact (link) for more information and to make reservations for your event. We would love to have you.
