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.

Mann Theatres opened the Cache Valley 3 in Fall 1976 as part of a national expansion program.[1] The three-screen multiplex had the same floorplan as the Alameda Plaza 3 in Pocatello and the Yellowstone Plaza Triplex in Idaho Falls.[2] Carmike Cinemas acquired all Utah theaters in the Mann Theatres chain in the mid-1990s.[3]

Westates Theatres took over management of the Cache Valley 3 on 16 February 2002, after Carmike pulled out of the theater due to its bankruptcy. Westates spent $50,000 to $100,000 on upgrading projection and sound equipment in the cinema.

In 2002 Westates Theatres began negotiations with JP Realty, owner of the Cache Valley Mall, for the construction of a new six-screen stadium seating multiplex to replace the aging triplex.
