Information for this tour was contributed by Jay Rambo.

The theater had a 500 seat auditorium and two 200 seat auditoriums. The theater claimed the large house largest indoor screen in the state. The 200 seat ones were added on later in the building's existence. It was resplendant in its 1970s orange and gold paneling.

United Artists worked very hard to try to divest of all its Boise properties (Plaza Twin, Overland Park, and the two Fairvu properties.) Finally, since it was prime retail property, the Fairvu properties were sold to Smith's Food King. They were planning on building a distribution center on the corner, but the only got as far as tearing down the theaters and building a large concrete box before they were bought by Fred Meyer, who didn't want anything at that location. It sat empty for at least five years and became a car lot in 2003.
