Vernal Theatre
Vernal, Utah

Deward H. and Alson A. Shiner opened the Vernal Theatre on 29 March 1946, showing Fred MacMurray and Claudette Colbert in No Time for Love.  The grand opening ad described it as “eastern Utah's finest moving picture theatre,” with “oceans of room” and “530 comfortable, body-form seats.”  The theater was built on the old confectionary lot.

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
