The Alhambra Theater opened before 1918 [1] and showed movies from about 1920 through the 1950s. [1]

The Alhambra Theater was the largest theater in Ogden. It was torn down in January 1971. Many of the ornate decorations, chandeliers, and painted drops from the Alhambra were donated for use in the New Alhambra Theater, which opened on 29 January 1971 at 2550 Washington Blvd. [2]
