Capitol Theatre
Brigham City, Utah

The Elberta Theatre opened in Brigham City on 12 March 1917, built by W. H. Shurtliffe and W. R. Dredge.  A unique feature of the theater was that moviegoers entered the auditorium next to the screen, allowing latecomers to find their way to their seats using the reflected light of the film.  An orchestra pit below the screen had room for a piano and up to five other instruments.  About 1927, the Elberta was renamed the Capitol Theatre.  It is now part of the Walker Cinemas chain.

Layton, Utah

 Cineplex Odeon opened the Layton Hills Cinemas on 14 November 1997.   The multiplex theater featured "sightline seating," curved screens, and digital sound in all nine auditoriums.  The largest auditorium had 444 seats and an elevator to reach the top of the stadium seating section.   AMC Theatres renovated the Layton Hills 9 in 2013, reducing seating capacity in each auditorium by 50 to 70 percent to install power recliners.
