Information for this tour was contributed by Grant Smith.

The Eko Theater brought silent motion pictures to Price in 1912, with shows on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for ten cents per person. In 1914 the Bonita Theater opened just east of the Eko Theater at the corner of Main Street and Carbon Avenue. The Eko Theater was later renamed the Lyric Theater and then Utah Theater.
