SCERA Showhouse
Orem, Utah

In 1989, Richard Cook, president of Buena Vista Pictures, said of the SCERA, "It's our favorite theater . . . it is a spectacular place to see a motion picture.  It gives the kind of presentation that we wish all our films would play in.  It's big, it's clean, it has wonderful sound, great sight-lines.  And they've been so loyal to our company and exhibited our pictures for so many years.''

Cinema Art, later known as the Blue Mouse, was the first venue for art and foreign films in Salt Lake City. The theater was originally a screening room and was located in the basement of the building.  The theater's seats came from a shoe-selling emporium.  The auditorium had 120 seats and was "stretched out like a long hallway."1
