Peery's Egyptian Theater & Egyptian Theater Foundation presents Sesquicentennial Celebration Screening

Tickets go on sale Wednesday, March 6th.

In conjunction with the Sesquicentennial Celebration around the state, Peery's Egyptian Theater and the Egyptian Theater Foundation invite you to join us for a special screening.

Edision Studio's The Great Train Robbery (1903 short) is a silent film that was a precursor to the western film genre.  It was the most popular and commercially successful film of its time, and established the notion that film could be a commercially-viable medium. The film will be accompanied by our Mighty Wurlitzer Theater Pipe Organ providing the soundtrack for the film. (11 mins)

We will also be screening Union Pacific (1939).

One of the last bills signed by President Lincoln authorizes pushing the Union Pacific Railroad across the wilderness to California. But financial opportunist Asa Barrows hopes to profit from obstructing it. Chief troubleshooter Jeff Butler has his hands full fighting Barrows' agent, gambler Sid Campeau; Campeau's partner Dick Allen is Jeff's war buddy and rival suitor for engineer's daughter Molly Monahan. Who will survive the effort to push the railroad through at any cost? Starring Barbara Stanwyck &  Joel McCrea (2 hrs 15 min)

Tickets are $8 each. Order your tickets online 24/7 through Smithstix, by phone at 801-689-8700 or in person at the Box Office M-F 10am to 6pm.
