Movie
Ogden, Utah

Wayne and Mark Stephens, owners of the North Star Drive-In, opened “The Movie” on 6 February 1970 in the former dining room of the Ben Lomond Motor Hotel.  It was the first new theater in downtown Ogden in more than a quarter of a century.  The cinema closed after the F. O. Woodbury family donated the troubled Ben Lomond hotel to Weber County.  The County Commission later terminated the lease on the theater in exchange for its internal fixtures.

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|
