On 29 April 1912, the New Uintah Theatre opened in the former Elk Building, which had been remodeled “along the latest moving picture house lines, with sloping floor, soloists platform, etc.” The ticket office was outside, under a “blaze of rows of electric lights.” Patrons of nearby towns appreciated having hitching posts on the premises. The New Uintah closed sometime prior to 1932. The E. W. Davis furniture store occupied the building before it became a piano store called the Henderson-Barlett Music Company.
The Willard Opera House occupied the upper floor of Charles Harding's General Store on the east side of Main Street, across from South Center Street. The opera hall, which had a small stage with wing space, was also used for recreation and dances. The Willard Opera House was in use around 1890 and was later destroyed by fire.
