Oracle Theatre
Ogden, Utah

Following the success of the New Electric Theatre, Charles Ziemer, H. A. Sims, and Albert Scowcroft opened Oracle Theatre on Washington Avenue.   Stanley B. Steck acquired the Oracle in April 1917 and changed the name to Cozy Theatre.   Harmon Peery of the Ogden Theatre Company took over management when Steck sold the business in 1923.   A few days later, A. M. Miller purchased the building and announced plans to replace the theater with a modern store once the lease expired.  Two years later, theater was “made vacant” and a remodeling permit was issued.

The Pages Lane Theater was established in 1991 by Ralph Rodgers, who previoulsy had managed the Promised Valley Playhouse in Salt Lake City and the Polynesian Cultural Center in Hawaii.

After Ralph Rodgers died in 1996 the Rodgers family donated the theater to the Davis County Performing Arts Corporation, a non-profit group led by real estate developer Bill Davies. The theater reopened in 1997 as the Rodgers Memorial Theatre.

Rodgers Memorial Theatre has experienced "phenomenal growth" because of "increased performances, interior upgrades and popular productions" and "community donations of time and money". The theater hopes to move to a larger facility.
