Frontier Theatre
Blanding, Utah

Floyd Nielson and Sons opened the Frontier Theatre on the night of the San Juan High School junior prom in March 1958. A few years after closing in 1974, snow and ice caved in the roof. In 1986, the Blanding City Council considered the “unsightly and unsafe structure” to be “a health hazard, area for public nuisance and deterrent to the City and County beautification.” After catching fire in July 1992, the owners began dismantling the building.

The Wynnsong Cinemas were built by Carmike Cinemas in 1996 as part of the Shops at Riverwoods development in the northern part of Provo.  The 42,000-square-foot theater complex had a total seating capacity of 2,240 and featured high-back seats, digital sound in all auditoriums and THX certification in six.  Construction began in April 1996, with the grand opening expected in time for the Christmas 1996 movie season.[1]

The Wynnsong Cinemas were later remodeled to add stadium seating.  The number of THX certified auditoriums has been reduced from six to two.  In June 2006 the Wynnsong Cinemas became the first theater in Utah County to feature digital projection.
