Joe, Montpelier had two theatres in the 1920’s, the Gem seated 500 and the Rich seated 400.

This web page says that the Rich Theatre opened in 1923 in a building formerly occupied by an automobile dealership.

I wonder if the project listed in the January 6, 1919, issue of the trade journal Lumber ever got built:

“Montpelierâ€"S. A. Shreeve, architect, Col.-Hudson Building, Ogden, Utah, is preparing preliminary plans for 80x150 ft. brick theater on Main Street here. $70,000.”
Does anybody know if there were any other theaters operating in Montpelier during the 1920s?
