I worked at this Theater Dec 1980 – 1981. There that a very cool basement where the staff would sometimes play Dungon and Dragons. The Manager was Tracy Hickman, who now writes fantasy novels. The projectors were sooooo old. Great staff. Lots of fun.

I worked at the Unita and Paramount in Provo while I was going to BYU. It was the greatest job. It was small and forced the staff to really inneract. We even, so many years later, stay in contact with a few people. We really believed that the two theaters were haunted and seemed to see “things” out of the corner of our eyes. We often found old posters and pieces of movies in the rafters. I was working there when the above pictures were taken and remember those movies will. I placed the letters for “splash” on the sign myself. In the winter it was interesting to get the the letters up there when there was snow on the ground.
