Movie
Ogden, Utah

Wayne and Mark Stephens, owners of the North Star Drive-In, opened “The Movie” on 6 February 1970 in the former dining room of the Ben Lomond Motor Hotel.  It was the first new theater in downtown Ogden in more than a quarter of a century.  The cinema closed after the F. O. Woodbury family donated the troubled Ben Lomond hotel to Weber County.  The County Commission later terminated the lease on the theater in exchange for its internal fixtures.

Dan Whitley renovated the old Power Plant disco club at the south end of Cottonwood Mall and opened it as the Lighthouse Theatre.  The opening production was “The Christmas Stranger” on 28 November 1995.  The theater-in-the-round was named “Lighthouse” because the free-standing building was originally a power generating plant. Whitley, a voice coach and musician, previously leased the Broadway Stage.[1, 2, 3]

The Academy of Performing Arts performed stage plays in the Lighthouse Theatre for several months before a new owner told them in January 2000 to vacate the building.[4, 5]
