If you're interested in learning more about the historic Chief Theater that was once in Pocatello, you should head to the Marshall Public Library.

There is a display on the second floor of the library that highlights the history of the Chief Theatre through pictures, artifacts, and news articles.

The display also has an actual door from the Chief Theatre.

The theatre opened in 1938 but burnt down in 1993 due to a fire.

Trent Clegg, Reference Specialist at Marshall Public Library said, "We're very excited to have this display here so that people can come and experience you know either a nostalgia for things they remember or for those who weren't around when the Chief was still a going concern."

The display will continue at Marshall Public Library through the end of November.
