Dreamland Theatre
Ogden, Utah

Charles and George Driskell were managers of the Dreamland Theatre on Washington Avenue for most of 1908.   They made improvements to the playhouse in March, including the addition of landscape panels on the walls made by local artists.   In August, the Dreamland added a second projector, eliminating the need for intermissions at reel changes.   A claim by George Driskell that he had “worked with untiring energy” to secure exclusive engagements at the Dreamland provoked a strong response from R. W. Strong with 20th Century Optiscope, who claimed the entire credit for resolving booking conflicts lay with the national Film Service Association.   Two months later, the Dreamland reopened under the management of Fred Tout and Fred Anderson.

The Century 16 opened on 1 October 1998 with a "Canned Film Festival" benefiting the Utah Food Bank. "Patrons were admitted to the inaugural screening by donating a non-perishable food item." The 57,700 square-foot theater complex was built by Layton Construction and has 16 THX-certified theaters, all with stadium seating and digital sound. The largest auditoriums seat 400 and the smallest 180. The old, domed Century theaters and the Prudential Federal Savings building were demolished to make room for the theater. The site has 8.41 acres.
