Peery's Egyptian Theater

Built in an era of sumptuous movie palaces, this 1924 theater - designed to replicate the courtyard between two Egyptian temples - has been returned to its original elegance. The modern stage house is designed to accommodate live theater, dance, choral, symphonic and multimedia performances as well as film. The theater is now home to a performance series, a film series and is a screening venue for the Sundance Film Festival.

We would like to thank Peery's Egyptian Theater for graciously hosting our onsite team for Annual Conference 2021!
