Joie Theatre
Brigham City, Utah

The Joie Theatre in Brigham City was known by as many as four names from November 1909 to November 1910.  After the Florence theater chain went under in 1910, former manager B. M. Neal and his wife slipped out of Brigham City using back streets and fields in an attempt to avoid paying their many debts.
