The Schubert Theatre is a theater located in Gooding, Idaho, United States. Built in 1920, it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2004.[1]

The building is a fairly simple two-story two-part commercial block, three bays wide. [2]

Sound equipment installed in 1930 allowed for "talkies" to be shown.[2]

Many articles in the Gooding County Leader chronicle the history of this theater. Opened in 1921. It was owned by Charmianne and Lonnie Leavell, a local couple who planned to restore the theater and turn it into a cultural center for the community of Gooding; the couple later donated the theatre to a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit, GREAT, Inc. (Gooding Restoration for Entertainment, Arts & Theater).

The theatre contains murals.[3]

In 2017 its status is "closed" according to Cinema Treasures.[4]
