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."

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]
