A close-up view of the entrance to the Victory Theatre in Salt Lake City appears at the top of this page of the March 6, 1926, issue of Motion Picture News.

From its date of opening, its location, and the description of an unnamed theater that was the subject of an article in the Salt Lake Herald of July 16, 1908, the architect of the Victory Theatre can be identified as E.W. Houghton of Seattle, with H.A. Hodgson as his associate in charge of construction. This was the same team that designed and built the Ogden Theatre at Ogeden, Utah, the following year.

The Salt Lake Herald article can be read online here, in the Library of Congress’s newspaper collection.
