The Quinn Theatre was opened on August 16, 1913 and it was built by Frank ‘Count’ Collins & George Quinn. An announcement in the Park Record noted the opening of the American Theatre September 15, 1918, with “There’s Many A Fool”, starring Hank Man.
Beginning in about 1924 the American Theatre was managed by John Rugar. Mr. Rugar opened the Egyptian Theatre in 1926 and on many occasions, films were moved from the Egyptian Theatre to the American Theatre.
On March 19, 1948, in a letter to the Park City Record Rugar announced the sale of the American Theatre and Egyptian Theatre. Mr. Rugar said he came to Park City 24 years ago and was leaving the theatres in the hands of Russ Dauterman, formerly of Fox West Coast and Publix. Mr. Dauterman was also connected to the Isis Theatre in Green River, Wyoming.
The American Theatre was listed in Film Daily Year Book 1951 with 594 seats.
On March 19, 1953, demolition of the building began and the site is now occupied by Spur Bar & Grill.
