Colonial Theatre
Ogden, Utah

Joseph Pantone, an early partner in the Colonial Theatre, thought the small cinema had “a bright future because the smaller establishments do not have the heavy overhead of larger picture houses and can share the saving with their patrons.”  The Colonial opened on Thanksgiving Day, 29 November 1923.  In 1935, it expanded from 389 to 490 seats.  The theater closed at the end of May, 1949.

The North Pointe Theatres opened in 2001[1] and were managed by the owners of the Pointe Theatre in Ogden.  The North Pointe Theatres closed on 15 October 2008,[2] sixteen months after the opening of the Megaplex 13 at the Junction.

The Walker family reopened the four-screen multiplex on 13 February 2009.  The theater was renamed the Walker cinemas, after the family's eight screen theater in Perry.  The public was invited to check out the facility with a free open house on 12 February 2009.[2]

"We like to keep a family-run business and keep the atmosphere friendly with people coming. We thought this theater would fit into our structure," said owner Kerry Walker.  "The building and equipment was in good shape. We've had to fine-tune projecting equipment to get better quality for films. We're getting all the seats dry-cleaned and throwing some paint up in the lobby."
