Cinedome Goes Dark, A Generation Mourns

Ogden Standard Examiner, 12 February 2001

Article Summary:

"Loews Cineplex, which had been leasing the Cinedome, is closing many of its theaters across the country, a victim of too many theaters being built by various companies in recent years.  The theater's owner is negotiating with another tenant, so the Cinedome may not be idle for long."

The twin auditoriums of the Cinedome featured stadium seating and 795 seats.  "Its generous aisles running along each side of the auditoriums were perfect for parents trying to calm fussy babies; they could stand while cradling the child and watch the movie at the same time.  And the screens were huge. Not just big. Huge."

One of the last two films playing at the Cinedome was "Vertical Limit".  In 1987, the theater hosted the premiere of "Three O'Clock High", which was filmed in Ogden.
