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.”

Keith and Jody Renstrom started the Valley Center Playhouse in 1975 after moving to Utah from California.  They rented buildings in downtown Provo and Orem before purchasing the Lindon location in 1984.|1|

"There needed to be a family theater in this area," said Jody Renstrom.  "Our main goal is to provide wholesome entertainment. We have always screened every play and nothing is ever offensive."|1|

At the second annual Star Awards, a black-tie gala fundraiser benefits the SCERA, Keith and Jody Renstrom received a lifetime achievement award.|2|
