The Egyptian Theatre is surrounded by urban legend and Boise history that makes this building a tour of Boise history and a cornerstone of the society scene.[clarification needed]
The theater's architecture is of the Egyptian revival style, inspired by the newly discovered King Tut's tomb. Over time, the structure underwent various changes. In 1999, it was remodeled once again after the original building.
The theater is architecturally significant as one of the few surviving theaters from the grand cinema and movie palace era in Boise.
