Pastime Theatre
Ogden, Utah

 The Pastime opened as a vaudeville theater on 8 March 1904.  Although “hastily constructed,” the management assured patrons the theater was “designed according to fire regulations” and had been “pronounced by experts to be the safest, most convenient and modern in the inter-mountain region.”   P. M Poulsen closed the Pastime on 6 November 1904, saying the building was too small to handle the crowds.   H. E. Skinner later reopened the theater as the Joie, one of the first motion picture houses in Ogden.

Lehi City Arts Center
Lehi, Utah

After the John Hutchings Museum of Natural History moved to the Memorial Building in 1996, the former museum was renovated and reopened as the Lehi City Arts Center.   Limited by its 100-seat auditorium with a combined green and dressing room, the Lehi Arts Council announced plans in 1998 for a new performing arts complex with a 1,800 seat Broadway theater, a smaller 248-seat theater, and a theater-in-the-round.  Pledges were secured for $6 million of the necessary $15 million, but fund-raising grew difficult due to competition from other Utah County arts initiatives and the 2002 Winter Olympics Games.  In 2003, Lehi City unveiled a $150,000 renovation of the existing arts center.
