Orpheus Hall
Vernal, Utah

C. W. Showalter, and Andrew King opened the Orpheus Hall on Thanksgiving Day, 30 November 1911.  The amusement hall had a spring dance floor, but was also used for roller skating, basketball, banquets, and movies.  It was named after the Greek god of Mirth, “a famous musician who is reputed to have had power to entrance men, beasts, and inanimate objects by the music of his lyre.”  At 11:00 PM on New Years Eve, 1928, the hall was renamed Imperial Hall.  In a ceremony on 20 April 1965, Governor Governor Calvin L. Rampton took a sledge hammer and delivered the first blow in the demolition of the hall as part of a community beautification campaign.

Herald Journal, 03 March 2004

Article Summary:
"The Passion of the Christ" set records at the Logan Art Cinema during its opening weekend, selling out one showing on Wednesday, two on Friday, three on Saturday, and two on Sunday.

"This never happens here. Busy for us is like 25 people . . ." said Shelly Burton, manager of the theater.   "Usually, you come to see a show and get your own private screening."

An all-time one-day income record of $5,000 was set by the three sold-out shows on Saturday.
