Bill and Marilyn Brown opened the original Little Brown Theatre in 1998, across the street from their Villa Playhouse Theatre in Springville. Health problems forced the Browns to sell both theaters and the Little Brown closed in 2005. After a six year absence, the Little Brown Theatre reopened in a new location on 28 October 2011. The 50-seat black box theater uses minimal sets and the seating area is flexible to accommodate different shows.

Luxurious, high-backed, foam padded opera chairs with plenty of stretch-out room between rows. The largest screen in the Ogden area, with the latest in projection equipment providing pictures of unequaled sharpness and clarity. Year 'round temperature controlled weather for health and comfort. At the entrance car-loading and unloading with acres of convenient, well-lit free parking." Wilshire Theatre, South Ogden, Utah 22 November 1968
