Famous Films Theatre
Ogden, Utah

When the Glen Brothers Piano Company opened its new store in 1923, the third floor included a 200-seat recital space named Chickering Hall.  The acoustics were described as “absolutely perfect.”  In 1975 the building was remodeled into the Washington Fair, a mall with a dozen specialty shops.  The stage on the third floor became the Laughing Gypsy Comedy Theatre and later the Famous Films Theatre.
