Peery's Egyptian Theater accommodates live theater, dance, music, symphonic and multimedia performances as well as film.
The historic Peery's Egyptian Theater is an 800 seat community performing arts center, located on Washington Blvd in downtown Ogden, presenting live musical and theatrical events as well as cinema.
Construction of the theater began in 1923 and the Egyptian officially opened on July 3, 1924. Built as a movie palace, the theater showed first-run movies well into the early 1980's but eventually closed in 1984. The Egyptian underwent a complete restoration and reopened on January 17, 1997, as a community performing arts center.
Peery's Egyptian Theater is a remnant from an era of opulent movie palaces. Today, the theater boasts state of the art technology that can accommodate live theater, dance, music, symphonic and multimedia performances as well as film. It is also available for general sessions and is conveniently connected to the Ogden Eccles Conference Center. The theater is home to several local performance arts groups, and it hosts various film and performance arts events throughout the year. With its status as a Sundance Film Festival venue and its constant bustle of activity, Peery’s Egyptian Theater once again reclaims its title as “The Showplace of the West”.
