Rex Theatre
Ogden, Utah

Stanley B. Steck was the principal owner of the Rex Theatre, which was earlier known as the Cherry Theatre.  Since it was located near another of his theaters, the Lyceum, Steck closed the Rex during the summer months, reopening in the fall when demand increased.   Because of the seasonal closures, the Rex became the nucleus of the Little Theatre community theater movements in 1919 and again in 1931.   The Rex became the Cozy Theatre after another of Steck's theaters closed.   In 1931 it became known as the Weber Theatre or Weber Little Theatre.

The It Theater showed movies from at least October 1912 to March 1914, with prices from 5 and 10 cents.[1]

The Ogden Standard Examiner commented in October 1913 that the It Theatre was coming to be known as the “Children's theatre” because many of their films were “especially interesting to the little folks.”  The fairy tales "Hop O' My Thumb" and the "Seven Leagued Boots" were to be presented in “beautiful natural colors” on 6 and 7 October 1913.[2]
