Dreamland Theatre
Ogden, Utah

Charles and George Driskell were managers of the Dreamland Theatre on Washington Avenue for most of 1908.   They made improvements to the playhouse in March, including the addition of landscape panels on the walls made by local artists.   In August, the Dreamland added a second projector, eliminating the need for intermissions at reel changes.   A claim by George Driskell that he had “worked with untiring energy” to secure exclusive engagements at the Dreamland provoked a strong response from R. W. Strong with 20th Century Optiscope, who claimed the entire credit for resolving booking conflicts lay with the national Film Service Association.   Two months later, the Dreamland reopened under the management of Fred Tout and Fred Anderson.

The Mann 6 theater was renamed Plaza 5400 after Carmike Cinemas acquired the Mann Theaters in the area.

The Plaza 5400 closed in the fall of 2000 as part of Carmike Cinemas' bankruptcy reorganization.

Consolidated Theaters re-opened the theater as a dollar house on 13 April 2001, renaming it Showcase Cinemas 6 and "promising added attention to service and lower-than-normal concession prices."1
