The Ogden Theatre has a rich story to tell. Back in the early 1900’s it used to host weekly dances, recitals, and vaudevilles. It’s most significant act during those days was the legendary Harry Houdini.
It was converted into a movie theatre in 1937 and showed classic to avant garde films. In the 1980’s it transformed to a repertory cinema and showed The Rocky Horror Picture show during Saturdays.
The theatre closed in 1990 and was due for demolition until independent live music promoter Doug Kauffman realized its potential and bought it in 1992. He converted Ogden Theatre to the top music venue that it is today.
