The LDS Ward in Bear River City built an opera house and amusement hall in 1904 at a cost of $6,000. On 15 February 1913, flames from an open stove door caught scenery on fire. The town had no water works and a bucket brigade was ineffectual. The theater burned to the ground, leaving only the rock foundation.
The Carriage Square Trolley theater was located at 1785 West 4120 South
and had two screens. The theater was built by Trolley Theaters,
but later managed by Plitt and Cineplex Odeon. Cineplex Odeon closed
the theater in January 1988 because the theater couldn't compete showing
first-run movies. They reopened the theater in July 1988 as a dollar
theater and renamed it Carriage Square Cinemas. The theater was
later closed and converted into a gym.
