Dreamland Theatre
Ogden, Utah

Charles and George Driskell were managers of the Dreamland Theatre on Washington Avenue for most of 1908.   They made improvements to the playhouse in March, including the addition of landscape panels on the walls made by local artists.   In August, the Dreamland added a second projector, eliminating the need for intermissions at reel changes.   A claim by George Driskell that he had “worked with untiring energy” to secure exclusive engagements at the Dreamland provoked a strong response from R. W. Strong with 20th Century Optiscope, who claimed the entire credit for resolving booking conflicts lay with the national Film Service Association.   Two months later, the Dreamland reopened under the management of Fred Tout and Fred Anderson.

Early 1980s  
 

The King Koal Theatre opened in the early 1980s in retail space that had been intended for a large men's store. The owner of the Crown Theatre and Price Theatre changed plans to build a new theater on 100 North, where the Olivetto Complex is now located, after the clothing store tenant pulled out of the development. Mike Johnson purchased all three Price theaters about 1996, after working in them since about 1970.[1]
