Best Local Architectural Treasure 

Egyptian Theatre

Readers' Picks

Boise wouldn't be the same without its signature arts palace, the Egyptian Theatre. Built in 1927, and taking an architectural cue from the discovery of King Tut's tomb, the Egyptian is a feast for the senses. The auditorium--and proscenium in particular--features eye-popping embellishments that would have made Tut feel at home. Hosting everything from seminars to dances, plays, concerts and local indie films to blockbuster premieres, the theater serves not only as a community gathering place but a lode stone for Boise's art scene. 700 W. Main St., Boise, 208-345-0454,

Second Place: Boise Depot,

Third Place: Old Idaho State Penitentiary,
