Vogue Theatre
Vernal, Utah

The Vernal Amusement and Improvement Company opened the Vogue Theatre on 29 December 1916, with Mary Pickford starring in Poor Little Peppina.  The Vogue was described as “the most modern moving picture show house in the Basin,” boasting features “right up to the minute.”   The 425-seat theater had a balcony and a 17-instrument Wurlizter Plan Orchestra organ.   The original name intended for the theater was “Princess,” but was changed to the “Vogue” after the management held a contest to find “the most catching name, with the least number of letters.”   The Vogue Theatre closed in 1960 and was remodeled for use as the Vernal Drug Company.

Movies 7 opened as a first-run movie theater, sometime before December 1988.  The multiplex is located in the Sandy Mall, near the Olympus Starship discount theater.  Movies 7 featured advanced ticket sales and the first THX certified auditorium in Salt Lake County.

By August 1991, two additional auditoriums were added and the theater's name changed to Movies 9. 

Movies 9 became a discount theater on 25 February 2000, a few months after the opening of the nearby Megaplex 17 at Jordan Commons.[1]

By mid-December 2012, all screens at Movies 9 had been upgraded to digital projection.[2]
