Colonial Theatre
Ogden, Utah

Joseph Pantone, an early partner in the Colonial Theatre, thought the small cinema had “a bright future because the smaller establishments do not have the heavy overhead of larger picture houses and can share the saving with their patrons.”  The Colonial opened on Thanksgiving Day, 29 November 1923.  In 1935, it expanded from 389 to 490 seats.  The theater closed at the end of May, 1949.

Screen II of the Highland Drive-In was on the east end of the drive-in.  When a wide screen was installed it had to curve on the edges because of the theater's original concrete wall.  Highland Drive-In Theatre, Salt Lake City, Utah
