Pastime Theatre
Ogden, Utah

 The Pastime opened as a vaudeville theater on 8 March 1904.  Although “hastily constructed,” the management assured patrons the theater was “designed according to fire regulations” and had been “pronounced by experts to be the safest, most convenient and modern in the inter-mountain region.”   P. M Poulsen closed the Pastime on 6 November 1904, saying the building was too small to handle the crowds.   H. E. Skinner later reopened the theater as the Joie, one of the first motion picture houses in Ogden.

The Cooper-Highland circuit of Denver1 opened the Flick Theatres on 22 December 1976 with both 300-seat auditoriums2 showing "The Seven Per-Cent Solution." The theaters, located across from the Trolley Theatres at Trolley Square, featured "lavish draperies in the main auditoriums, as well as the rich-looking, expensive carpeting in the lobby area."1

In about 1982, Mann Theatres purchased the Flick Theater.3 Carmike Cinemas acquired the theater in the mid-1990s. The theater closed permanently about 23 April 1998 and the space was converted to retail.
