Historical Colonial Theater

Colonial - Deep Love

Built by C.A. Spath, cashier of the Farmers and Merchants Bank; Dr. C.M. Cline, physician and S.K. Mittry, contractor: the Colonial Theater opened on November 10, 1919, at a cost of just over $175,000. It boasted one of the largest stages in the Intermountain West, a modern ramp (in lieu of stairs) to the balcony, a ventilation system, which circulated fresh air every five minutes and superb acoustics. Traveling vaudeville acts and minstrels entertained, as well as musical acts like John Phillips Sousa.

In 1929, it was renamed the Paramount Theater and began showing moving pictures. Sadly, it fell into disrepair in the late 1980’s and was closed.

In 1994, Dick Clayton, Sr. and his son Steve donated the theater to the Idaho Falls Arts Council, a private nonprofit organization.

The Idaho Falls Arts Council launched a capital campaign, known as the Phantom project. An anonymous donor challenged the community to raise half of the total cost and the Phantom would donate the remaining. The successful $4.2 million dollar campaign renovated the Colonial Theater and the adjacent buildings into a beautiful visual and performing arts center for the region.

Renamed for the Phantom donors, Miles and Virginia Willard, who also chaired the campaign, the Willard Arts Center now contains a visual arts building with galleries, classrooms, artist studios, meeting spaces for events, and much more.

Today the 988 seat Colonial Theater is one of three large theaters of historical significance which still remain in Idaho. In 2014 alone, the Colonial Theater played host to over 25,000 patrons.

David Archuleta ~ American Idol Ending It’s Run

Posted by bebereader on Monday, May 11, 2015

I wasn’t surprised when I read the news this morning that “American Idol” was ending it’s run after it’s fifteenth season, next year.  Just a little melancholy because it signifies the end of an era and where I was first introduced to David Archuleta.

I know that there are people who still watch, even David fans. But I haven’t watched the show since Season 7 except in bits and pieces.  I lost my faith in the show’s premise, to find the best singer. I mean, come on. Really??

The show declined in ratings after Simon left and I understand why. He’s as sharp as a tack at what he does and provided a lot of zingers and “did he really say that?” moments.  But, in my opinion, there’s no excuse for degrading and belittling contestants for the sake of entertainment. It got old.

Apparently they are planning a big hurrah for the last season. I will watch but only to see glimpses of David.

Here are links to articles, to read more.

Happy Mother’s Day ~ David Archuleta

Posted by bebereader on Sunday, May 10, 2015

FotoFlexer_PhotoThis old picture of David and his mother, Lupe has become a classic.  It’s posted here in honor of  both Mother’s Day and the seventh anniversary of his trip back home to Murray, Utah during his stint on American Idol. No matter how far, I hope David is able to spend Mother’s Day with his Mom this year.

David Archuleta ~ Glorioso Es

Posted by djafan on Tuesday, May 5, 2015

currentcredit Meet The Mormons

After the Youtube video for the Spanish version of “Glorious” was posted on this site, Gladys made this comment:

gladys1961 said
“The song is beautiful, David’s voice is sublime. It is different from the version in English. The lyric has totally changed.”

I was curious and asked Gladys if she would please transcribe the Spanish lyrics for us. When I read the Spanish lyrics and then translated them to English, I understood what Gladys meant. Although the sentiment is the same in both songs, the lyrics are very different. However, the song sounds just as beautiful in both languages.

David’s voice in Spanish has a natural flow. It may be because of his gift of combining the end of one word with the beginning of the next, weaving the lyrics together to create the melody.

What do you think?

David Archuleta ~ “Don’t Run Away” Live

Posted by djafan on Monday, April 13, 2015

dont run away 1

dont run away 3

All drawings by Kylie Malchus

While David was away on his mission he released two albums; “No Matter How Far” and “Begin”.  From “No Matter How Far”, we have heard Wait, Everything And More, and Love Don’t Hate performed  live.  I’ve always wondered if I would have the opportunity someday to hear some of the others live too.  For example, Nothing Else Better To Do, Tell Me, Heart Falls Out, Notice Me and Don’t Run Away.  Don’t Run Away being at the top of my list.

dont run away

What a surprise when he performed it live at Rootstech.  David’s simple introduction, “I’ve never sung this next song live before, but here we go”.  I recognized it immediately and just couldn’t believe it.  It’s the performance I watch the most from that day.  It’s David singing from his soul, the passion and cry in his voice reaching out to all.

 

A music video was also released while he was away which had a million views.  A simple but beautiful sequence of drawings by Kylie Malchus fit the song perfectly.  I was saddened that she wasn’t able to get into the conference hall at Rootstech especially since little did she know that “Don’t Run Away” was going to be performed live.

 It currently has 943,801  views!

Don’t Run Away Lyrics

When something’s wrong
And too much to handle
Try to find some peace of mind
Let it go.
Wait a minute, you know this road
It’s gonna leave you on overload, yeah
‘Cause somebody cares, yeah

I can see you hurting (turn around)
I will be right there
Don’t run away, don’t run away, don’t run away
When I reach out to you, look around
I will be right here
Don’t run away, don’t run away, don’t run away
Tonight

Don’t make a sound
I’ll be your voice
You don’t need to be afraid
Anymore
I’ll shine a light out in the dark
Guide you here no matter how far

Oh, yeah
‘Cause somebody cares, oh yeah

I can see you hurting, (turn around)
I will be right there
Don’t run away, don’t run away, don’t run away
When I reach out to you, look around
I will be right here
Don’t run away, don’t run away, don’t run away

Open up, let it all out tonight, yeah
Open up, and everything will be alright

I can see you hurting, (turn around)
I will be right there
Don’t run away, don’t run away, don’t run away
When I reach out to you, look around
I will be right here
Don’t run away, don’t run away, don’t run away

Turn around, don’t run away, don’t run away
I will be right here, oh
Tonight, tonight

dont run away 2

Context Matters ~ David Archuleta

Posted by Abrra on Monday, April 6, 2015

When the above tweets came over my phone on Saturday afternoon, I had two thoughts. David is watching the LDS General Conference and he is going to get some interesting feedback.

On Saturday I went to David’s timeline and here are a few of the reactions that fans had to his two tweets above. I chose some in support of what he quoted and others that do not support what he tweeted. I thought this might be an opportunity for fans here to express their opinion on the quote. While David likes to send quotes out, I am not always sure they have the desired effect he intends.  It seems to be an out of context quote taken from President Packer’s speech. A synopsis of the speech can be found in this Deseret News article http://tinyurl.com/n4exz4f.

@kimak @Astrid222 what difference does it make if he is married or has children? He can’t have an opinion?

oh boy @DavidArchie i don’t know how i feel about this. any
more preachy judgement and i might just have to unfollow
you.

Holly @hollyreFOD
@DavidArchie Jesus never married or had children. Was there ever a greater love? No. No.

Patricia @pbfville
@DavidArchie so tired of all the sexism and homophobia –
this offends the infertile as well. Maybe you will help
move your church forward!

penciltopaper @penciltopaper
@DavidArchie My sincere hope is that you will continue to
learn from life itself and not just go by words you hear.
Live, love, and learn.

Sydney Walcoff @sydney_shiriel
@DavidArchie I know how strong you are in your beliefs, but
you just isolated so many of your fans by invalidating their
beliefs about love

I am not in agreement with the quote from LDS President Packer because there are personal reasons why a married couple may not have a child. Is there a value one places on the quality of romantic love based on having children? Is the infertile couple or those who are a same-sex couple any less in love because they are childless? It has an exclusionary tone and I think it is just not a well thought-out statement when you consider the realities of life in 2015.

The Twitter/Instagram posts that I enjoy are those relating to David’s career or him showing us what he is doing at that moment. The good news is that David Archuleta gained 200+ followers on Twitter over the weekend.

Statement From David: 

I apologize if I have offended anyone with the quote I sent out Saturday. I guess I didn’t think about the line “expressed between a man and a woman in marriage” being stressed when the whole quote didn’t fit in just 1 tweet. I am sorry my intentions were misunderstood, as my main focus was that too often romance is looked at as the end-all when there is so much more. The bonds that can be there within a family and raising kids, as that is the most valuable thing I have: my family. I do hope however, that whoever may have been offended may know I respect everyone’s freedom to believe and live as they choose. I hope others can respect what I value most in my life as well. Again, I’m sorry and please forgive me if I offended you. David

David Archuleta Mission Return: One Year Later

Posted by djafan on Tuesday, March 24, 2015

Aniiversary

Today marks 1 year since I left Chile where I served as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints for 2 years. Tomorrow will mark 1 year since I finished my full-time mission. This weekend has brought many memories of mission experiences in Chile, and the wonderful people that I shared my time with there. The memories have just come flooding! I've taken some time to ponder over what the mission has done for me, and keep other missionaries in mind and in my prayers as I think of them experiencing the same things. We went for some Chilean empanadas de pollo, pino, y queso to commemorate the Chilean mission experience. #mission #LDS #empanadas #Chile #missionaries #mormon #food #1year #memories

David Archuleta Mission Return: One Year Later

by Kristin, Guest Writer for The Voice

Today, March 24th marks at least one year since David has returned from serving his two-year mission.  Like everyone else, I was so happy to see him back and thankful he got back to his family safely.

It’s amazing how much time flies sometimes. From heading or transferring to a new college, weddings, graduations, birthdays, whatever else may have happened to all of us in the past year, we aren’t the same as we were prior.

For me, 2014 was a difficult year. Lost weight, lost my cat, a second episode of depression…so much heartache and pain. David being back didn’t seem to alleviate all of my struggles, but it gave me a distraction from everything for a while.

Regardless of those struggles, none of us are the same since David came back a year ago. Some of us have stayed to wait it out; some of us have left or moved on for whatever reason. Some of us chose to believe and have faith when, to others, it just seemed impossible.

I’ve been reflecting the past few days as I write this. Having my spring break last week and taking some initiative with where I wanted to go in my life, I’ve seen how much I’ve grown and changed in the past year. I am definitely not the broken girl who had hit rock bottom with her faith and with everything around her a year ago. Just like David has grown, adjusted, and taken time to reconnect with himself, with his life. Not just his life, but his music, what he wants to say to his fans in that music, what he wants to say to the world…and what he wants to say for himself.

At times we got frustrated with him; I’ve had my moments too. Other times, we were excited for him, wondering about where he would take his career next after being away for two years. We worried about if he’s changed so much since those two years away, and if, due to his silence, if he even still wanted a career.

Well, I know one thing from what I’ve observed of David.

He doesn’t give up so easily.

In today’s music industry where we have—people who shall remain nameless—we need people like David to give us hope in good people, to make us feel good and inspired, and also to give us a chance to grow and change from what we learn from him or learn about ourselves.

I know, for me, and people who know me probably know this part of the story, but David was my light in a dark place. That unexpected/unanswered prayer who…

…switched something on in me again. Lit up something in me again that was snuffed out prematurely.

For a lot of us, life changed the very first time we saw David. For me, it took him going away for two years to make me really take a step back and realize what I was truly blessed with, what God placed in my life when I didn’t even ask for it.

A young man around my age, shy like me, who just wanted to do what he loved to help people. Someone that actually cared about the platform he was given, someone who wasn’t afraid to stand up for what mattered to him, and someone who was willing to take a step back himself with his life, and learn something he had to learn in order to move forward.

I’ve been afraid of disappointment, of being let down. Some people have thought that of David during the past year, and I can understand. When going through my personal demons, I struggled with my connection with David, letting other people bother me and letting doubts run my life…

…until I realized enough was enough.

Now, on this March 24th, I am still Kristin. I haven’t changed that much, but I’ve been healing. Taking it one day at a time with myself and with what David plans to do with his career and music next. The news last night of an announced concert has gotten us all hopeful again, excited for the future.

For me…it feels so close in this battle of personal doubts and fears from the past five years, trying to gain the courage to finally see, for myself, a man who has been such a gift in my life, who made me wake up and see where I was and the potential I have to do good, just as he has even before becoming famous.

To look him in the eyes and say, “You got me through the toughest years of my life.”

To hug him, have a picture with him, and see for myself that this has been worth it all this time.

Just as David is worth it…and was worth waiting for, and fighting for.
