Management of Theater Changes on Retirement

In the 17 years he has lived in this area, Nolan Hartley says probably the highlight was the western premiere showing in Provo of "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid."

Not only the star of the show, Robert Redford, was present, but also Natalie Wood, Governor Calvin L. Rampton and many cast members of the film.

Mr. Hartley worked his last day as manager of the Fox and Academy Theaters Friday.

Taking his place as not only manager of the two Provo theaters but also the four new theaters being built at Carillon Square in Orem is Bob Zacha.

Mr. Hartley and his wife are looking forward to retirement in Birmingham,
Ala., later this month. Mrs. Hartley has worked for a local firm as comptroller for 16 years. Their daughter, Carol, is a social worker in Salt Lake City.

The Hartleys moved to Provo from Baker, Ore., and Mr. Hartley has served in many civic capacities. He joined the Rotary Club in 1958 and served as president in 1974-75.

Mr Zacha lived in Billings, Mont., most of his life. He was born in North Platte, Neb., and most recently served as manager of a theater in Denver.

Mr. Zacha began working in the theater business about nine years ago and has been married for five years. He attended Eastern Montana College in Billings.
