Vogue Theatre
Vernal, Utah

The Vernal Amusement and Improvement Company opened the Vogue Theatre on 29 December 1916, with Mary Pickford starring in Poor Little Peppina.  The Vogue was described as “the most modern moving picture show house in the Basin,” boasting features “right up to the minute.”   The 425-seat theater had a balcony and a 17-instrument Wurlizter Plan Orchestra organ.   The original name intended for the theater was “Princess,” but was changed to the “Vogue” after the management held a contest to find “the most catching name, with the least number of letters.”   The Vogue Theatre closed in 1960 and was remodeled for use as the Vernal Drug Company.

The Redwood Drive-In Theatre was built by United Intermountain Theaters at a cost of $140,000.  Beesley Construction Co. was the contractor and the scheduled completion date was 15 July 1949.  The 12 1/2 acre theater featured a diamond-shaped lot with a 46 by 64-foot screen and a capacity of 600 cars.  There was a picnic ground and a playground for children.  Ramps were numbered and lighted, and featured a combination speaker and heater.  Moviegoers could press a button on the speaker to signal for refreshments.[1]
