We remember … the smell of the popcorn… the plush multi-design carpeting… and the beautiful Egyptian icons carved into the walls of the lobby.  As we walked into the theater and found our favorite seats, we knew that we had entered a special, magical place.  The massive pillars on either side of the stage (the proscenium) commanded our attention with their bold, intricate patterns and depictions of ancient Egyptians. We raised our eyes to the top of the stage and saw the beautiful goddess Isis, poised high above all with wings spread majestically. Somehow it felt like a forbidden act to gaze upon her naked beauty, and we tried not to stare. Then the lights dimmed, the red curtains parted, and the stars in the ceiling above began to twinkle!

Peery’s Egyptian Theater is…

  • A venue for the Sundance Film Festival
  • Utah’s last existing bona fide movie palace
  • Listed on the National Register of Historic Sites
  • One of 42 (est.) Egyptian-design theatres constructed in the entire United States
  • On the Ogden City Register of Historic Sites
  • One of a dozen or fewer Egyptian-style theatres of movie palace status remaining in the U.S.
  • Thought to be the only “atmospheric” theatre of any design in the Intermountain region and is one of the two Egyptian-style theatres in the nation with its auditorium “sky” dotted with twinkling stars.
