Cinemas 5
Vernal, Utah

When Warren Mott and his sons opened the Twin Cinema on 23 November 1973, it was the largest theater complex between Denver and Salt Lake City.  The lobby featured a huge crystal chandelier with 54 lights suspended over a round concession and ticket counter.  The 500 and 300-seat auditoriums were equipped with carpeting, drapes, “stadium type upholstered seats,” stereophonic speakers, and 21 by 40 feet Cinemascope screens.  The adjoining El Diamante reception center was converted to a third auditorium after Kent Limb purchased the theater in 1982.

Beverly Olsen opened the Terrace Plaza Playhouse in November 1992 with three separate productions, Scrooge, Babes in Toyland, and The Wondrous Night.  Olsen and her partners spent $300,000 remodeling a Smiths supermarket that had sat vacant for five years into a 315-seat theater with a thrust stage.  The theater was named after Washington Terrace, the southern Ogden suburb in which it is located.  Partners for the non-profit theater were Blaine and Beverly Olsen of Fruit Heights, Kim and Jacci Florence of Layton, Joseph and Tami Olsen of South Ogden, and Rob and Patti Johnson of Sandy.  Plans for the project included a year-round acting school and a mini-mall in the remainder of the building.[1]
