The Cinefour Theatres opened sometime before October 1999 and are owned by Kelly Walker, who owns the Walker Cinemas in Perry, and Calvin Timothy. The theater is equipped with radio reciever headphones for the hearing impaired, but lacks the extra insulation necessary for THX certification.
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.
"Tonight blew our minds," owner Calvin Timothy said. "We're definitely going to keep doing this."
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."
