The Caldwell Luxe Reel Theatre opened summer 2018 and is a"first-run", 11 screen luxury movie theater in the heart of downtown.

Many visitors to Caldwell are surprised to learn that Babby Farms exists… pleasantly surprised, that is! The non-profit farm has been open to the public for six years, and is home to over 150 animals. What started as a mobile petting zoo is now set on about 3 acres outside of the city (the farm occupies 12), and the variety of animals they house is amazing! All the animals are born in the United States, and many are donated from sister petting zoos around the country, many of which are effected by natural disasters and need a safe place for their animals to live.

“They really run the gamut from A to Z,” says Aaron Johnson, general manager of Babby Farms. “We’ve got Alpacas and Ant-eaters, as well as a Zibo and Zedonk – that’s a cross between a Zebra and a Donkey.”

There is a full-time zookeeper on site, and the animals are extremely well cared for – in return they care for visitors as well.

“We are truly dedicated to providing children and adults with special needs the unique opportunity of getting up close with a number of our animals – we call them our ‘Ambassador Animals,’” says Johnson. “Whether that comes in the form of playing with a baby goat in the petting zoo, or holding a lemur or sloth, we want to make Babby Farms a win-win experience for everyone.”

As mentioned above, one of the most popular exhibits at Babby is the petting zoo. It has baby goats, sheep, and kangaroos!

Babby Farms shows no sign of slowing down; they are working hard to become a self-sustaining farm, including growing their own hay this past year. They have two greenhouses as well. And their facilities are expanding too, they are adding a primate facility in late 2018/early 2019 which will open them up to run more animal encounter experiences.

“We love being here in Caldwell,” says Johnson. “We have an extremely supportive community behind us, and we can’t wait to expand further so more community members can enjoy our facilities.”

Formed in 1961, Caldwell Fine Arts is a nonprofit arts organization dedicated to presenting and promoting the fine arts, educating the community, and developing cooperative relationships for the arts in the Treasure Valley. We are passionate about making connections through the arts! We are delighted when multiple generations of a family attend a ballet together, community members from all walks of life sit side by side and enjoy world-class music, and cultures collide as we understand diverse people and places through the arts. We love to inspire local children by introducing them to new genres, providing hands-on opportunities to explore their talents, and giving them a chance to rub shoulders with exceptional makers and performers. 

We present community performances in the beautiful 876-seat Jewett Auditorium on The College of Idaho Campus, and in the more intimate Langroise Recital Hall. We are also out and about in the community, sponsoring events at Indian Creek Plaza, local schools, nursing homes, parks, detention centers, and libraries.

The arts are the lifeblood of any area and add a vibrancy nothing else can duplicate. The economic impact of the arts is substantial and substantiated, but we seek for far more than that. We want to help provide the abundant life for all members of our community through performances and programs that are family-friendly, budget-friendly...and just plain friendly-friendly!
