Film Daily reported the opening of the Grand Theatre by Mike Nielsen which took place on March 30, 1927 with George Sydney in “Millionaires” & Gene Cameron in “Dizzy Dancers”. According to the Logan Herald Journal November 6, 1956, Michael Nielsen operated it until 1936 and due to declining health sold it to Intermountain Theatres who closed it in 1939.

Mr. Nielsen built the Roxy Theatre (Utah Theatre) in 1935 in Logan, the Roxy Theatre in Brigham City and the Grand Theatre in Preston, Idaho. Nielsen passed away in 1938 leaving his theatre real estate to his wife Nettie and management to Intermountain Theatres who took over in 1939. It was closed and renovated, reopening on June 3, 1939 with Errol Flynn in “The Adventures of Robin Hood”.

Film Daily Year Book 1928 lists the Grand Theatre with 388 seats. It was closed on April 27, 1940 with James Newill in “Yukon Fight” & Bill Elliott Pioneers of the Frontier".

According to Sanborn Maps 1930, the location today would be the parking lot with a view of the fly loft of the Ellen Eccles Theatre.
