Lyceum Theatre
Ogden, Utah

Sawyer and Young opened the Lyceum Theater on 9 November 1903 in a small frame structure which was originally built as a school house.   The auditorium of the Lyceum had a slanted floor with a seating capacity of 250, but “another fifty could be crowded in if necessary.”  The Lyceum closed on 17 July 1910, with demolition beginning the next day, so that a new “thoroughly up-to-date show house” could open on the site in time for the next vaudeville season.
