On 29 April 1912, the New Uintah Theatre opened in the former Elk Building, which had been remodeled “along the latest moving picture house lines, with sloping floor, soloists platform, etc.” The ticket office was outside, under a “blaze of rows of electric lights.” Patrons of nearby towns appreciated having hitching posts on the premises. The New Uintah closed sometime prior to 1932. The E. W. Davis furniture store occupied the building before it became a piano store called the Henderson-Barlett Music Company.
The Lagoon Opera House opened in 1968, presenting summer theater shows such as "Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat", "A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum", and other Broadway hits.1 The theater is part of the Lagoon amusement park, but has not been used in recent years. Most of Lagoon's entertainment shows are presented in the Music USA Theatre and the Carousel Theatre, both of which are newer and more open than the Lagoon Opera House.
