Roosevelt Twin Theatre
Roosevelt, Utah

George H. Harrison and R. Howard Harrison opened the $40,000 Roosevelt Theatre on Valentine's Day, 14 February 1942, with Shirley Temple in Kathleen.  The “modern up-to-the minute motion picture theatre” was described as “new, beautiful, and elaborately equipped.”  The interior color scheme was peach, green, and beige, with red velour curtains and drapes.  The 500 seats in the auditorium were “arranged on a slight arc so that every seat directly faces the screen.”  The stage was large and had floodlights, so the theater could “accommodate many types of entertainment” and serve as “a community playhouse as well as a motion picture theatre.”

The Airdome Theater in Myton was probably an open-air dance hall with a wooden or concrete floor.1  The theater had been vacant for several years when a fire broke out in the town of Myton on 19 June 1915.  After fighting it for four hours, firefighters finally stopped the fire by tearing down the Airdome Theater and removing its combustible materials from the fire's path.2
