August Paulsen, who had made a fortune in the Idaho silver mines, built the theater as one of the first-full time motion picture theaters in 1915. The theater was host to many celebrated performers, including Bing Crosby. The theater was renovated in 1991 as the Met and in 2006 it was renamed for Crosby.
