Vernal Theatre
Vernal, Utah

Deward H. and Alson A. Shiner opened the Vernal Theatre on 29 March 1946, showing Fred MacMurray and Claudette Colbert in No Time for Love.  The grand opening ad described it as “eastern Utah's finest moving picture theatre,” with “oceans of room” and “530 comfortable, body-form seats.”  The theater was built on the old confectionary lot.

Shortly after Lewiston was settled a theatrical group was formed.  In 1884 the people of Lewiston built the Lewiston Opera House.  It was used for motion pictures, dances, dramatic productions, basketball games, and roller skating before it was destroyed by fire in 1929.
