Surprise Theatre
Bountiful, Utah

Lamoni Call opened the Surprise Theatre on 12 May 1909. The theater did so well that a company organized a year later to buy and enlarge the theater to 500 seats. A stage was to be added, "sufficiently large to accommodate the best traveling troupes that visit small towns."

The Cinemark Movies 6 was built in 1980 as part of the new Layton Hills Mall.1  In 1990, Cinemark built the Movies 10 theater next to Movies 6. In December 1994, Cinemark announced that it would demolish Movies 6 in order to build a new 16-screen theater.2 The new theater was later named Tinseltown and had only 7 screens instead of the originally-planned 16.
