Richard Bohle opened a hardware store as part of the Rupert Iron Works Company, it was nothing big, he just saw a need and filled it. In the early 1970’s Ace Hardware of Rupert really began to take shape. They had a few growing pains in the 1980’s; however they were able to grow from them and expanded their store to include a Burley location.
Ace Hardware of Rupert and Burley is a family owned and operated hardware store. They pride themselves on their service provided to their customers. They keep their shelves fully stocked and receive shipments in 2 times a week, so that their customers are able to find what they need, you can also shop online and have it shipped to the store without having to pay a high freight charge on larger orders.

The Bowen Theater Co. was started back in the 1920’s by Bob Harris’s grandfather, who had partnered with a man named Bowen; together they opened the Burley Theater in downtown Burley which was originally a vaudeville house. Bowen left the partnership shortly after but the name stayed with the company. In the 1950’s the Bowen Theater Company had theaters in about 4 states, having 4 drive-in theaters and a total of 12 theater locations. The Century Cinema opened its doors in 1977 as a single screen and has now expanded to 5 screens.
Bob Harris is the current president of the Bowen Theater Co. and runs Century Theater in burley, with his son, Mike as owner/manager. Over this past year the Century Cinema has been updating all of their equipment to digital movie projectors and sound. The Burley Theater has undergone some upgrades and as of November 1st 2013 now has full digital pictures and sound.
Popcorn is a traditional favorite snack when going to see a movie; however some of the unusual snacks offered at our theaters are the large pickles at the Burley Theater, and the jalapeno poppers at the Century Cinema.
