Built on the old site of the burnt down Arlington Hotel in 1923, Peery?s Egyptian Theatre was constructed in accordance to plans of opening a grand theatre. It was designed by the Hodgson & McClenahan architectural firm, after taking cues from other grand theatres in the country.

Peery?s Egyptian Theatre is an 800-seater movie house made of poured concrete. It was designed to be very durable, especially fire-resistant. They even did a test of the structure?s quality and proudly announced to the public that Peery?s is ?Ogden?s only fireproof theatre?.

Today, Peery?s Egyptian Theatre still serves its original purpose. It is still a movie palace, but is now also a venue for other modes of entertainment like music, dance, and theatre events.
