Bijou Theatre
Ogden, Utah

The Bijou Theatre, later named The Odeon, may not have been open for much more than a year.  Manager De Mott showed pictures using a “Cameraphone” on a cloth screen, a method criticized by his successors as “a failure as an attraction.”  Higginbotham and Platt replaced the cloth screen with a fine plaster wall, “upon which the pictures will appear to much better effect.” 

Utah Theatre
Salt Lake City, Utah

In April 1968, Intermountain Theatres announced plans to divide the Utah Theatre into the state's first two-screen theater complex.  The original auditorium, which seated 1765, was divided by adding a floor from the balcony to the proscenium arch.  The new upper-level theater was known as the Penthouse and included the rows of balcony seating and the original, ornate ceiling.
