Pastime Theatre
Ogden, Utah

 The Pastime opened as a vaudeville theater on 8 March 1904.  Although “hastily constructed,” the management assured patrons the theater was “designed according to fire regulations” and had been “pronounced by experts to be the safest, most convenient and modern in the inter-mountain region.”   P. M Poulsen closed the Pastime on 6 November 1904, saying the building was too small to handle the crowds.   H. E. Skinner later reopened the theater as the Joie, one of the first motion picture houses in Ogden.

In October 1998, after the opening of the new 14-screen Cinemark Tinseltown at Newgate Mall, Carmike Cinemas dropped admission prices at the City Square Four theater from $6.25 for adults and $4.25 for children to $1. Attendance at the theater was averaging 50 patrons on a typical night, but after the change it jumped to over 200. At the time, no other theater in the Wasatch Front offered a $1 admission. 2
