Cinemas 5
Vernal, Utah

When Warren Mott and his sons opened the Twin Cinema on 23 November 1973, it was the largest theater complex between Denver and Salt Lake City.  The lobby featured a huge crystal chandelier with 54 lights suspended over a round concession and ticket counter.  The 500 and 300-seat auditoriums were equipped with carpeting, drapes, “stadium type upholstered seats,” stereophonic speakers, and 21 by 40 feet Cinemascope screens.  The adjoining El Diamante reception center was converted to a third auditorium after Kent Limb purchased the theater in 1982.

About 1920  
 
The Alladin Theatre was built in the 1920s by the Mitchell family.  The theater's main purpose was to show movies, but it also had a stage and orchestra pit for live performances.  Gordan Farnsworth later purchased the theater and continued showing movies until the 1980s. 

About 1989 the Farnsworth family donated the building to Parowan City for use as a community theater.  Voluneteers renovated the theater, including reupholstering the seats, stripping and cleaning the wooden floors, and rebuilding the stage.  In the last 1990s, the facade of the theater was restored, including a replica of the original marquee.  The city later received a grant to the roof and expansion the back of the theater to include proper dressing rooms, storage, and restrooms.
