Information for this tour was contributed by Grant Smith.

The Ermo Theater was built above Salt Creek, which cooled the theater during the summer months. Children of the community would sit on horses outside the theater's windows and watch the movies for free. The theater was later renamed the Venice Theater. [1]

The Venice Theater was destroyed by a fire on 27 November 1983, [2] and the facade of the building was demolished on 5 March 2001. [3] Plans to replace the Venice Theater by building a new theater complex in Nephi never came to fruition. [4]
