Peery's Egyptian Theater

Peery’s Egyptian Theater is a remnant from an era of opulent movie palaces.  The theater is a major asset in the community. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and is known internationally.  It is a key player in the growth and development of Ogden’s cultural and entertainment offerings. 

Peery's Egyptian Theater's Auditorium

Today, Peery’s Egyptian Theater boasts state-of-the-art technology, including restored atmospheric lighting that resembles a fiery desert sunset evolving into a sparkling star-studded night. The modern stage house design can accommodate live theater, dance, choral, symphonic, and multimedia performances.

Inside Peery's Egyptian Theater

Built in 1924 and designed to replicate the courtyard between two Egyptian temples, the theater represents a time when the discovery of King Tut’s tomb kindled the nation’s interest in Egyptian history.

Located in Beautiful Downtown Ogden

We pride ourselves on having a little something for everyone here in Ogden, Utah. Our rich “mountain to metro” personality derives from a unique balance of downtown Ogden’s vibrant shopping, dining, and nightlife with back yard access to year round, heart-pounding outdoor recreation and the majestic beauty of the Wasatch Mountain Range.

A Community Theater

Our performance series events reflect the wide range of interests within the surrounding community.  While it has expanded beyond its movie palace beginnings, Peery’s Egyptian Theater certainly has not forgotten its roots. Along with being a Sundance Film Festival venue, the theater hosts periodic multi-feature events that celebrate a chosen genre.

 

WSU Shaw Gallery & Utah Film Center presents "Eve Hesse"

A superstar in the art world, but little known outside, why does Eva Hesse continue to excite passions? This brilliant, gifted and visionary woman of 1960s NY survives personal chaos while creating work that changes the profile of art history. Along with creating a significant and deeply influential body of work during her short life, her story overlaps some of 20th century's most intriguing moments: Germany in the 1930's, New York's Jewish culture of immigration in the 1940's and the art scene in Manhattan and Germany in the 1960's.

Ogden City Arts presents Jake Shimabukuro

Ukelele wizard Jake Shimabukuro has been declared a "musical “hero” by Rolling Stone, wowed TV audiences (Jimmy Kimmel, Conan), earned comparisons to Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis, and had his viral video interpretation of George Harrison's "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" rack up more than nine million YouTube views.

He has taken our perception of the four-string two-octave instrument further than anyone ever thought possible. His live concerts have been called an out-of-the-box blend of stunning virtuosity, deep musicality and a natural entertainer's flair.
