Capitol Theatre
Brigham City, Utah

The Elberta Theatre opened in Brigham City on 12 March 1917, built by W. H. Shurtliffe and W. R. Dredge.  A unique feature of the theater was that moviegoers entered the auditorium next to the screen, allowing latecomers to find their way to their seats using the reflected light of the film.  An orchestra pit below the screen had room for a piano and up to five other instruments.  About 1927, the Elberta was renamed the Capitol Theatre.  It is now part of the Walker Cinemas chain.

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.
