This web page says that the Rich Theatre opened in 1923 in a building formerly occupied by an automobile dealership.

I wonder if the project listed in the January 6, 1919, issue of the trade journal Lumber ever got built:

“Montpelierâ€"S. A. Shreeve, architect, Col.-Hudson Building, Ogden, Utah, is preparing preliminary plans for 80x150 ft. brick theater on Main Street here. $70,000.”
Does anybody know if there were any other theaters operating in Montpelier during the 1920s?

Joe, Montpelier had two theatres in the 1920’s, the Gem seated 500 and the Rich seated 400.

The theatre is open according to the telephone. They are now playing Star Wars, closed on Christmas Eve and on Sundays. The area is about 90 percent Mormon so I can understand the Sunday closing/
