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.

The Cinema 8 was built before 2000 and is located at the south end of Cedar City.  The eight-screen theater originally had sloped seating.

In April 2003, Westates Theatres reopened two of the auditoriums with stadium seating and then proceeded to upgrade the remaining theaters in pairs.  The name of the theater complex was later changed from Cinema 8 to Stadium 8.
