•Megaplex at Thanksgiving Point

Roosevelt Twin Theatre
Roosevelt, Utah

George H. Harrison and R. Howard Harrison opened the $40,000 Roosevelt Theatre on Valentine's Day, 14 February 1942, with Shirley Temple in Kathleen.  The “modern up-to-the minute motion picture theatre” was described as “new, beautiful, and elaborately equipped.”  The interior color scheme was peach, green, and beige, with red velour curtains and drapes.  The 500 seats in the auditorium were “arranged on a slight arc so that every seat directly faces the screen.”  The stage was large and had floodlights, so the theater could “accommodate many types of entertainment” and serve as “a community playhouse as well as a motion picture theatre.”

Article Summary:
The new Thanksgiving Point Stadium 8 Theatres will open four of its eight screens Friday at noon. The theater was originally scheduled to open May 23, but was delayed a week because of problems getting the seats shipped and installed. All eight theaters should be open by next Friday.

The Stadium 8 is Westates Theaters' second theater in Utah County. The first was Water Gardends Cinema 6 in Pleasant Grove, which opened in November 1997.

The $3.5 million theater complex has 28,000 square feet and is equipped with “the most modern equipment in projection and sound technology.” Auditoriums seat between 200 and 300 patrons and feature stadium seating. The theater's mirror projectors have infinite focal points, making the screens' brightness and clarity equally dispersed. All theaters have digital sound, with Dolby sound systems in two of them.
