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.

AARP presents "Singin' in the Rain"

"What a glorious feeling!"  Join us for a classic! 1927 Hollywood: Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont are the darlings of the silent silver screen. Offscreen, Don, aided by his happy-go-lucky friend and piano accompanist, Cosmo Brown, has to dodge Lina's romantic overtures, especially when he falls for chorus girl Kathy Selden. With the advent of sound in motion pictures, it is decided to turn Don and Lina's new film into a "talkie" and a musical at that. The only problem is Lina's voice, which mere words cannot describe.

WSU Cultural Affairs presents Idan Raichel and Vieux Farka Toure

The Toure-Raichel Collective brings together Malian guitar virtuoso Vieux Farka Toure and Israeli superstar Idan Raichel to create masterworks of collaboration and improvisation. After a chance meeting at an airport in Europe, Toure and Raichel forged a deep friendship that led to an impromptu get together at a small studio in Tel Aviv with Israeli bassist Yossi Fine and Malian calabash player Souleymane Kane. Vieux recalls, "When I first met Idan he looked like a crazy hippie to me. Then the minute we first played together, I knew...he has deep talent and a deep soul."
