Paula Zutes built the Crescent Moon Theater in honor and memory of her husband, Nick Duncan. Construction began in 2002, using a design by Thebeau Consulting, and the theater opened in May 2003. The Crescent Moon was conceived as a "Cowboy Theater", which fits the beautiful history of the Kanab area and its colorful history of western culture. The theater features musical entertainment, cowboy poetry, talent shows, theater and dance productions, and film events such as the Monday Classic Movie Night and the Kanab Film Society Evening. The 180-seat theater features a snack bar, four dressing rooms, DVD projection equipment, a full PA and lighting system, and a VIP room upstairs with full view of the stage.
