Frontier Theatre
Blanding, Utah

Floyd Nielson and Sons opened the Frontier Theatre on the night of the San Juan High School junior prom in March 1958. A few years after closing in 1974, snow and ice caved in the roof. In 1986, the Blanding City Council considered the “unsightly and unsafe structure” to be “a health hazard, area for public nuisance and deterrent to the City and County beautification.” After catching fire in July 1992, the owners began dismantling the building.

The Fox Theatre in Provo had 796 seats and opened in May 1967. The theater was built by Fox Intermountain Theatres, a subsidiary of National General Corp., as part of a 50-million-dollar expansion program to add 100 new theatres in the U.S.1

The Fox Theater was almost identical to the Fox Cottonwood Mall Theater in Salt Lake before it was split.  The Fox Theater was demolished and a McDonalds now stands on the site.
