SCERA Center for the Arts
The historic SCERA Center for the Arts, which opened in 1941, is our longest-standing facility and has two theatres: the remodeled Clarke Grand Theatre and Showhouse II. The entire lobby and concessions area was renovated in 2006. An outdoor courtyard has a 20’ working sundial, 3 lifesize bronze sculptures depicting a father, mother and child, a giant chessboard with playable pieces, and plaques with inspiring quotes on time and families. In the interior lobby is a series of stained glass windows depicting 8 areas of the arts: Theatre, Dance, Literature, Architecture, Song, Music, Art and Film and well as two floor-to-ceiling custom stained glass pieces by artist Tom Holdman. The Center’s programs offer something for everyone: our indoor performing arts series; art exhibits in Gallery 101; feature films, classic cinema series and children’s summer matinee program; arts education programs for youth including drama, music, dance, and art (with financial need scholarships awarded to deserving students); special events including Sunday firesides, Theatre for Young Audiences, Celebration of Veterans, The Star Awards and the LDS Film Festival; and rental availability of our theaters and multi-purpose rooms for fairs, festivals, meetings, reunions, conferences, classes, performances, recitals, rehearsals and more.
