Colonial Theatre
Ogden, Utah

Joseph Pantone, an early partner in the Colonial Theatre, thought the small cinema had “a bright future because the smaller establishments do not have the heavy overhead of larger picture houses and can share the saving with their patrons.”  The Colonial opened on Thanksgiving Day, 29 November 1923.  In 1935, it expanded from 389 to 490 seats.  The theater closed at the end of May, 1949.

The Basin Drive-In is the smallest drive-in in Utah, with a capacity of 200 cars. The drive-in was originally located in Vernal, but in 1958 Truxton Lund1 purchased the theater and moved everything (including projection equipment, screen, and sign) to Mount Pleasant.2

The Basin Drive-In is closed during the winter months but is open during the summer months.
