About the Colonial Theater at Willard Arts Center

Welcome to the home of Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker in Idaho Falls! The Colonial Theater has been fully refurbished for modern stage and film presentations. The lobby and the theater have retained historic art deco details like the black and white tile, elaborate crown molding, and the swooping proscenium ornamentation. The building dates back to 1994 when a local businessman donated three adjacent dilapidated downtown buildings to the newly formed Idaho Falls Arts Council (IFAC). It raised over $4.5 million to renovate these buildings to become the Willard Arts Center, which currently encompasses the historic Colonial Theater, two visual art galleries, nine artist studios, meeting rooms, and administrative offices.
