It is wonderful place to go. I went to watch Willy Wonka Jr. and it was amazing. It was the first time I have been in the theater that I remember. I might have been there as a child but, I don't know. I love it from it being plays to the old details in the ceiling, walls, doors and building.....etc.

This theater is the perfect blend of modern technology and historic beauty. If you have the chance to see a show at the Nuart, do it!

The Blackfoot Community Players put on amazing shows throughout the year. Musicals to comedies, they are always great. They mostly use local talent so it is a great way to get involved and see if the stage is your place to escape.

Great historic building, frequent delightful plays and musicals. Comfortable seating. Ticket prices are comparable to movie tickets. Inexpensive concession stand prices. Limited parking and restrooms, no drinking fountain.

A dated theater building that keeps improving because of the dedication, commitment, and love of many in the community. The theater hosts community plays, musicals, and other events.
