Cinemas 5
Vernal, Utah

When Warren Mott and his sons opened the Twin Cinema on 23 November 1973, it was the largest theater complex between Denver and Salt Lake City.  The lobby featured a huge crystal chandelier with 54 lights suspended over a round concession and ticket counter.  The 500 and 300-seat auditoriums were equipped with carpeting, drapes, “stadium type upholstered seats,” stereophonic speakers, and 21 by 40 feet Cinemascope screens.  The adjoining El Diamante reception center was converted to a third auditorium after Kent Limb purchased the theater in 1982.

Famous Films Theatre
Ogden, Utah

When the Glen Brothers Piano Company opened its new store in 1923, the third floor included a 200-seat recital space named Chickering Hall.  The acoustics were described as “absolutely perfect.”  In 1975 the building was remodeled into the Washington Fair, a mall with a dozen specialty shops.  The stage on the third floor became the Laughing Gypsy Comedy Theatre and later the Famous Films Theatre.
