Roosevelt Twin Theatre
Roosevelt, Utah

George H. Harrison and R. Howard Harrison opened the $40,000 Roosevelt Theatre on Valentine's Day, 14 February 1942, with Shirley Temple in Kathleen.  The “modern up-to-the minute motion picture theatre” was described as “new, beautiful, and elaborately equipped.”  The interior color scheme was peach, green, and beige, with red velour curtains and drapes.  The 500 seats in the auditorium were “arranged on a slight arc so that every seat directly faces the screen.”  The stage was large and had floodlights, so the theater could “accommodate many types of entertainment” and serve as “a community playhouse as well as a motion picture theatre.”

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
