Fountain Green Theatre
Fountain Green, Utah

The LDS Church opened the Fountain Green Theatre and Dance Hall in 1918 and for decades it was the heart of the community.  In 1944 the building was sold to Ivin Rasmussen, who continued to operate the recreation center until 1950, when television changed the way people spent their evenings.  Rasmussen converted the dance hall into a general store, but the building sat vacant for 30 years after the store closed in 1976.  His descendants donated the building to the city in 1998 and the restored community center reopened on Memorial Day weekend 2004.

Hi-volume theaters

By Pat Bohm Trostle
Herald Journal, 26 October 1999

Article Summary:

Utah State University instructor Ken Curtis took his class of graduate audiology students to the Cinefour Theatres and Movies 5 to measure sound levels experienced members of the audience sitting near the middle of the auditorium.

During a tour of the projection booth, Cinefour assistant manager Julie Ewing said that the Cinefour wasn't designed for the extra insulation required for THX certification.  She also explained the differences between Dolby Stereo, Dolby Digital, and DTS, but the article doesn't mention if the Cinefour was equipped for any of those formats.  The theater does have radio receiver headphones with volume controls to assist the hearing impaired.
