Vogue Theatre
Vernal, Utah

The Vernal Amusement and Improvement Company opened the Vogue Theatre on 29 December 1916, with Mary Pickford starring in Poor Little Peppina.  The Vogue was described as “the most modern moving picture show house in the Basin,” boasting features “right up to the minute.”   The 425-seat theater had a balcony and a 17-instrument Wurlizter Plan Orchestra organ.   The original name intended for the theater was “Princess,” but was changed to the “Vogue” after the management held a contest to find “the most catching name, with the least number of letters.”   The Vogue Theatre closed in 1960 and was remodeled for use as the Vernal Drug Company.

The Cinefour Theatres opened sometime before October 1999[1] and are owned by Kelly Walker, who owns the Walker Cinemas in Perry, and Calvin Timothy.[2]  The theater is equipped with radio reciever headphones for the hearing impaired, but lacks the extra insulation necessary for THX certification.[1]

On 13 August 2004, the Cinefour Theatre held its first gaming night.  A video projector and a Microsoft Xbox video game system were installed in each of the four auditoriums, allowing 16 teams to battle each other in the game “Halo” until early Saturday morning.   Eight 34-inch televisions were placed in the lobby to accommodate large gaming crowds.  Some contestants drove as far as Bountiful to participate.[2]

"Tonight blew our minds," owner Calvin Timothy said.  "We're definitely going to keep doing this."[2]

Cinefour Theatres was one of the first theaters to play video games on a movie screen.  "According to the gal at the licensing company, we're the first theater ever to license XBox with them for a theater," Timothy said.  "It took an act of Congress and a blessing of God."[2]
