Located on the 400 block of N. Main Street. Opened in 1969, the Trix Cinemat was a walk-up screening room built in space formerly occupied by a lodge hall. A slender tracerlight shadowbox marquee marked the theatre enrance, which was a sheetglass door where steps climbed up to a landing. On this landing a yellow arrow gave instructions on how to deposit a crisp five-dollar bill into a red blinking slot, which would activate a revolving-door turnstile that admitted a patron (one at a time) into the lobby area.
Red carpeting broke up the monotony of a black painted ceiling and walls. A unisex restroom was off to one side. Pop, coffee, and candy vending machines created the only lighting for the room. Red curtains outlined the auditorium entrance.
A single aisle evenly separated new, high backed fiberglass theatre chairs. Blackout drapes lined sidewalls. Continuous porn projected onto a goodsized screen, and one couldn’t help but wonder if there were a live person in booth, or was the projector automated too?
Trix Cinemat operated only a few weeks before it was shut down as a fire hazard due to a lack of adequate fire escapes. After that all equipment was moved to Denver where it was used in another automated cinema. The building was demolished in 1975.
