Roosevelt Twin Theatre
Roosevelt, Utah

George H. Harrison and R. Howard Harrison opened the $40,000 Roosevelt Theatre on Valentine's Day, 14 February 1942, with Shirley Temple in Kathleen.  The “modern up-to-the minute motion picture theatre” was described as “new, beautiful, and elaborately equipped.”  The interior color scheme was peach, green, and beige, with red velour curtains and drapes.  The 500 seats in the auditorium were “arranged on a slight arc so that every seat directly faces the screen.”  The stage was large and had floodlights, so the theater could “accommodate many types of entertainment” and serve as “a community playhouse as well as a motion picture theatre.”

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.
