Vogue Theatre
Vernal, Utah

The Vernal Amusement and Improvement Company opened the Vogue Theatre on 29 December 1916, with Mary Pickford starring in Poor Little Peppina.  The Vogue was described as “the most modern moving picture show house in the Basin,” boasting features “right up to the minute.”   The 425-seat theater had a balcony and a 17-instrument Wurlizter Plan Orchestra organ.   The original name intended for the theater was “Princess,” but was changed to the “Vogue” after the management held a contest to find “the most catching name, with the least number of letters.”   The Vogue Theatre closed in 1960 and was remodeled for use as the Vernal Drug Company.

The It Theater showed movies from at least October 1912 to March 1914, with prices from 5 and 10 cents.[1]

The Ogden Standard Examiner commented in October 1913 that the It Theatre was coming to be known as the “Children's theatre” because many of their films were “especially interesting to the little folks.”  The fairy tales "Hop O' My Thumb" and the "Seven Leagued Boots" were to be presented in “beautiful natural colors” on 6 and 7 October 1913.[2]
