The South-East Theatre opened December 25, 1936 with Esward Arnold in “Come and Get It!” and was run by Fox Intermountain Theaters. The South-East Theatre was located in the southeast district of Sugarhouse, next to the Sprague Branch library.

Like many small town theatres, the theatre was actually dozens of feet from its street entrance, and was reached by a long hallway. Additionally, the auditorium was positioned at an angle, apparently following the odd property line of the adjacent library.

The South-East Theatre closed, probably in the 1970’s, and was converted into retail. In the late-1990’s it was demolished to make way for a new retail development on the block.

I went to shows here several times in the 60’s,once in 1970.It was a beautifully elegant house.The nice place that was Sugar House back then added to the enjoyment.My new wife liked to check out the furniture store across the street.Still have the only pc.I bought there,an end table.The ice cream store around the corner was a legend.Only Country Boy Dairy in N.Ogden can compare in quality today.

My Mom took me to see the remastered Fantasia here sometime in the 60’s. Also an obscure movie called The Swashbucklers. My friends Mother took us to see The Love Bug. Fun times.
