The Bijou Theatre, later named The Odeon, may not have been open for much more than a year. Manager De Mott showed pictures using a “Cameraphone” on a cloth screen, a method criticized by his successors as “a failure as an attraction.” Higginbotham and Platt replaced the cloth screen with a fine plaster wall, “upon which the pictures will appear to much better effect.”
The Rex Theatre in Castle Dale closed about 1930. The Ferron ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints acquired the projection equipment of the Rex Theatre in 1930 and began showing movies in the local meetinghouse.
