Chief to shine again: Neon sign effort continues in Old Town Pocatello

POCATELLO — Memories of movies seen for the first time in Pocatello’s Chief Theater came flooding back to folks gathered for Friday’s official groundbreaking ceremony for restoration of the theater’s iconic neon sign on the 200 block of North Main.
 Dixon said there are more than 20 neon signs in the downtown area of the Gate City, and nine of them will be lit when the annual Light Up the Night Parade is held Nov. 29. Among those will be the massive Scott’s Ski and Sports sign on the front of the historic Peterson Building across North Main from the Chief sign.

    Old Town Pocatello director Stephanie Palagi said there will be a grand opening for a new Purple Moon Gallery and Auction House that is being established by Sam Neutuschil in the Peterson Building on Nov. 29 to coincide with the Chief sign relighting.
