Cinemas 5
Vernal, Utah

When Warren Mott and his sons opened the Twin Cinema on 23 November 1973, it was the largest theater complex between Denver and Salt Lake City.  The lobby featured a huge crystal chandelier with 54 lights suspended over a round concession and ticket counter.  The 500 and 300-seat auditoriums were equipped with carpeting, drapes, “stadium type upholstered seats,” stereophonic speakers, and 21 by 40 feet Cinemascope screens.  The adjoining El Diamante reception center was converted to a third auditorium after Kent Limb purchased the theater in 1982.

Article Summary:
For several years now the Logan area has felt the absence of alternative, arthouse cinema.

The recent opening of the Providence Stadium 8 theaters has now given Westates Theatres enough flexibility to to devote the Reel Time Theatre to art films.  The name of the theater will even be changed to Logan Art Cinema.

The most recent source of art cinema in the Logan area was the Alternative Cinema club on campus, but the volunteer effort collapsed about 1996.  Afterwards, Marty Spicer revived independent film showings for a time at the Main Theater in Smithfield.
