Chief Theatre Display Lights up the Marshall Public Library

The history of a treasured Pocatello building will be on display at the Marshall Public Library. 

During the month of November, the library will highlight the Chief Theatre on the second floor of the library. The display features an original door from the Theatre, photographs, and more. 

“For many, the Chief Theatre is a symbol of their childhood,” said Eric Suess, Marshall Public Library Director. “We invite everyone to come take a walk down memory lane with the display and if you don’t remember or don’t know about the Theatre, come find out more about what so many talk about.”

The Chief Theatre opened its doors in 1938 and in 1993, a fire destroyed the building. Today, the Chief Theatre’s sign was restored by the Relight the Night group and stands where the building was located on Main Street in Pocatello.
