Roosevelt Twin Theatre
Roosevelt, Utah

George H. Harrison and R. Howard Harrison opened the $40,000 Roosevelt Theatre on Valentine's Day, 14 February 1942, with Shirley Temple in Kathleen.  The “modern up-to-the minute motion picture theatre” was described as “new, beautiful, and elaborately equipped.”  The interior color scheme was peach, green, and beige, with red velour curtains and drapes.  The 500 seats in the auditorium were “arranged on a slight arc so that every seat directly faces the screen.”  The stage was large and had floodlights, so the theater could “accommodate many types of entertainment” and serve as “a community playhouse as well as a motion picture theatre.”

The Carmike 12 was the last new theater complex to be built in the Salt Lake area before the start of the stadium-seating building craze which caused three local theater chains to enter bankruptcy.  The theater was later remodeled with stadium seating to help it compete against the Megaplex 17 at Jordan Commons and the Carmike 24 at Jordan Landing.  The theater originally had six THX-certified auditoriums, but currently only theaters 6 and 7 are certified.  All auditioriums are equipped with either DTS or Dolby Digital.  The Carmike 12 has the same floorplan as the Carmike Wynnsong Cinemas in Provo.
