Long Description:
This vintage theater is located in the historic section of Draper. It was originily called the Pearl Theatre and was built in 1938 by the Howell family. It was named after the matriarch of the family and a daughter-in-law. Then for over 30 years the theater was known as the Draper Theatre.

From 1970 to 1973, the theater was named The New Draper Theatre. From 1976 to after 1986 it was the Cameo Theater.

In about 1985, Robert Denning bought the theater and operated it for a time as the Reel Theatre. He later sold the theater and started the Reel Theatre chain, which had theaters in Oregon, Idaho, and Utah.

Charles and Vanessa Nelson purchased the Draper in 1988 and converted the stage to accommodate live performances. The theater is now known as Draper Historic Theatre and is operated by a non-profit board. The theater presents family-oriented musicals and plays.
