Orpheus Hall
Vernal, Utah

C. W. Showalter, and Andrew King opened the Orpheus Hall on Thanksgiving Day, 30 November 1911.  The amusement hall had a spring dance floor, but was also used for roller skating, basketball, banquets, and movies.  It was named after the Greek god of Mirth, “a famous musician who is reputed to have had power to entrance men, beasts, and inanimate objects by the music of his lyre.”  At 11:00 PM on New Years Eve, 1928, the hall was renamed Imperial Hall.  In a ceremony on 20 April 1965, Governor Governor Calvin L. Rampton took a sledge hammer and delivered the first blow in the demolition of the hall as part of a community beautification campaign.

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.
