Opening of the Lamphouse Theater in Twin Falls

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KLIX) — After several years with the lights off and the screen black, the small independent Lamphouse theater is open again. Located in the warehouse district of Old Twin Falls, the Lamphouse will once again show documentaries, independent films and classic films. “It’s a work in progress,” laughed Dave Woodhead, owner and operator of the Lamphouse. Hoping to open the doors to the public sooner than they would like, Woodhead had to delay the first screening for one reason or another. The first show to play will be the documentary “Hallelujah” about the song written by Leonard Cohen. “We love those kinds of movies. We’re lucky to have the space that used to be the Lamphouse Theater and maybe we’re better able to do that now,” Woodhead said. Originally opened in 2001, the Lamphouse would show films for the next six years until business slowed. Woodhead said reopening the theater has been his goal for some time and hopes there will be enough of an audience to support him. The Lamphouse will offer snacks, mocktails and soft drinks; eventually they will serve beer and cocktails. Once fully operational, the theater will offer two evening performances with weekend matinees. Woodhead said he would also be able to show movies on a smaller screen in the living room.
