The Colonial Theater in Idaho Falls, Idaho is turning 100 years old. The Idaho Falls Arts Council needed assistance in archiving and compiling photographs and documents to create a commemorative book for this 100 year mark. I arranged and conducted research at The Colonial Theater and The Museum of Idaho. I discovered, scanned, documented, and transcribed photographs and relevant records. I presented my findings to the Arts Council and they were pleased with the images and accounts that I discovered. Now there is more than enough content to create a book to celebrate this staple of the Idaho Falls community.
