Apollo Hall
American Fork, Utah

The parents of the Osmond Family enjoyed dancing at the Apollo Hall so much they bought the hall when it went up for sale. The Fuell family reopened it as the Apollo 8 in February 2011. The dance hall has a 7,000 square foot, spring-loaded dance floor.

In 1923 Tony Duvall purchased the 16-unit Iris Apartment Building and built onto the north side of it a small theater named The Gem. In 1930 Duvall demolished The Gem and replaced it with the larger New Iris Theater and an 8-unit apartment building. The New Iris was later renamed the Vista and then the Desert Star Playhouse.1
