The Kanab Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Lattery-Day Saints installed sound equipment for "Talkies" in the Ward Hall in 1934. Movies for children and adults were shown each Friday and Saturday evening.1

The Garfield County News commended church leaders, saying "One of the best ways to raise the morale of any community is to furnish sufficient, proper, up-to-date, clean amusement."1

The Ward Hall continued showing movies through 1940.
