Movie
Ogden, Utah

Wayne and Mark Stephens, owners of the North Star Drive-In, opened “The Movie” on 6 February 1970 in the former dining room of the Ben Lomond Motor Hotel.  It was the first new theater in downtown Ogden in more than a quarter of a century.  The cinema closed after the F. O. Woodbury family donated the troubled Ben Lomond hotel to Weber County.  The County Commission later terminated the lease on the theater in exchange for its internal fixtures.

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
