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.

James and Robert Pendray built the Pendray Plaza in northeastern Delta in 1980.  The development included a 48-unit motel, a restaurant, retail stores, bank, retail stores, and offices.  The Pendrays later added a movie theater and bowling alley.

Sometime between 1990 and 1995 the Plaza Twin Theatre became the "T & T Twin Theatres at the Plaza".
