Why Harry Potter didn't open at the Egyptian
By Laura Wylde
The fourth film in the Harry Potter series opened last week at the brand-new Edwards Theater in the BoDo shopping center, even though the Egyptian Theatre had hosted the previous three films and had posted advertisements promoting the Goblet of Fire in its windows for weeks prior to the film's release. So was Boise's oldest theater simply teasing its loyal fans? On the contrary. In this case, the theater was a victim as well. It's a common policy of major film companies to give blockbuster films to a new theater in an area.
