Bear River Opera House
Bear River, Utah

The LDS Ward in Bear River City built an opera house and amusement hall in 1904 at a cost of $6,000.  On 15 February 1913, flames from an open stove door caught scenery on fire.   The town had no water works and a bucket brigade was ineffectual.  The theater burned to the ground, leaving only the rock foundation.

The State theater was located at 228 South State Street in Salt Lake City, Utah. It opened about 1928. In 1949 the theater was operated by Joseph L. Lawrence and David K. Edwards*, who also operated the Uptown, Rialto, and who built the Villa Theatre. In 1958, the license of the State was suspended for 60 days because of a "complaint or charge as made by Chief of Police W. Cleon Skousen".*
