Opera House for Brigham
Box Elder News, 27 February 1920, page 1
In the discussion of the use the property will be put to by the wards, sentiment has been almost unanimous for the immediate erection of a modern theatre thereon, large enough to meet the requirements of this community for all time to come in the way of providing a first class opera house and moving picture theatre. The tentative plans discussed also include a spacious dance hall over the theatre and a basement equipped with a gymnasium and swimming pool. There is ample ground to provide the conveniences mentioned and the location is ideal. The cost of the structure would depend upon the amount of decorative work to be done but it has been estimated that a magnificent building can be erected at a cost of from fifty to sixty thousand dollars.
Ever since the city wards decided to dispose of the corner there have been murmurs of regret from a great many people and the only comfort that could be got out of the transaction was that the property would be improved and retained by local people. Now that such a thing seems to be impossible the repossessing of the property by the four wards was the logical move and already that course has been unstintingly commended by all who have become acquainted with the proceedings.
