  • The Independents Day Issue

    Celebrating those who fight against a homogeneous world
      Independence. What does it mean? It means separate and apart from-not the same. In America, we are seeing less and less of it. As every new look-alike subdivision gets built, a cookie-cutter set of businesses establish themselves on the high-traffic intersections; chain gas stations, chain fast food, chain coffee shops, chain upscale dining, chain retail ... it's all the same. Travel to any other city in America and look in the sections of town that have been built in the last 10 years and you'll be hard pressed to tell if you are in Phoenix, Denver, Atlanta or Richmond.

A lot-not merely that it's one of only two independent movie theaters in Boise (the other being the Egyptian). Besides being the only place to see films you can't see locally elsewhere, Rick and Carole Skinner offer movie rentals-chosen with the same sub-radar aesthetic-and delicious food and drink alongside the usual movie theater concessions.

  • The Boise Co-op

    Serving every carob-conscious local since 1973
      The Boise Co-op technically cannot be bought out by a larger corporation by its very nature as a member-owned co-op, but that doesn't mean Boise's favorite alternative grocery/deli/hang-out does not undergo the quintessential struggles that characterize independent business.
