Arc Theatre

Main Street
Roosevelt, Utah 84066

(1925 - ?)

The Arc Theatre opened 3 July 1925, under the management of E. M. Swain, and was “a beautiful house” and “a credit to the growing city of Roosevelt.”[1]

The theater was built by a company of stockholders.  The building featured a pressed brick exterior with black mortar trimmings, which “greatly enhances the appearance of main street.”  Interior surpassed “the exterior in beauty and appointment.”  It was described as the “finest appointed and attractive show house in eastern Utah.”  “No show house of its size in Utah will be more convenient or better appointed.”[2]
