Information for this tour was contributed by Grant Smith.

The Kanab Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Lattery-Day Saints installed sound equipment for "Talkies" in the Ward Hall in 1934. Movies for children and adults were shown each Friday and Saturday evening. [1]

The Garfield County News commended church leaders, saying "One of the best ways to raise the morale of any community is to furnish sufficient, proper, up-to-date, clean amusement." [1]

The Ward Hall continued showing movies through 1940. [2]
