Villa Theatre
Salt Lake City, Utah

The historic Villa Theatre opened in 1949, showing the black and white film "Prince of Foxes."  In 1961 the Villa became the only theater in Utah to show Cinerama.  The theater closed 18 February 2003 and has been renovated as a beautiful rug gallery.

Orpheus Hall
Vernal, Utah

C. W. Showalter, and Andrew King opened the Orpheus Hall on Thanksgiving Day, 30 November 1911.  The amusement hall had a spring dance floor, but was also used for roller skating, basketball, banquets, and movies.  It was named after the Greek god of Mirth, “a famous musician who is reputed to have had power to entrance men, beasts, and inanimate objects by the music of his lyre.”  At 11:00 PM on New Years Eve, 1928, the hall was renamed Imperial Hall.  In a ceremony on 20 April 1965, Governor Governor Calvin L. Rampton took a sledge hammer and delivered the first blow in the demolition of the hall as part of a community beautification campaign.
