New Electric Theatre
Ogden, Utah

Lester B. Funge announced plans in 1904 for the Grande Vaudeville Theatre, an 800-seat playhouse between the Reed Hotel and the St. Paul Lodging House.   In 1906, a three-story building with a hall on the top floor occupied the site.  On 20 November 1907, the 197-seat New Electric Theatre opened in a remodeled house in the same location.  The Electric was the first theater operated by the Alhambra Theatre Company, which would grow to at least eight theaters in three states within seven years.

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.
