Globe Theatre
Ogden, Utah

The Globe Theatre was one of the first movie theaters in Ogden, opening by February 1909.   Charles Zeimer, Albert Scowcroft, and Harry Sims purchased the theater by August 1909, operating it along with the Oracle and Isis.   Three months before the theater chain opened the Alhambra Theatre, the Globe was remodeled into a roller skating rink.   Its last night as a cinema was 15 December 1914.   The building later became a bus garage.

The Crest Theatre, "Your deluxe family theatre," opened on 9 February 1950 with Danny Kaye in 'The Inspector General.'[1]

The Crest had a "ultra-modern design of beauty and luxuriousness."  Native flagstone and evergreens decorated the front of the building.  The marquee was designed "in keeping with modern motif of rolling lines."  The foyer and lounge area featured a mural and "pleasing colors and restful comfort in furnishings."  Indirect lighting illuminated the auditorium.  The draperies made "a striking effect of beauty."[1]

The theater appears to have been converted into a two-storey office building which now makes up part of the Country Club Marketplace.
