The LDS Ward in Bear River City built an opera house and amusement hall in 1904 at a cost of $6,000. On 15 February 1913, flames from an open stove door caught scenery on fire. The town had no water works and a bucket brigade was ineffectual. The theater burned to the ground, leaving only the rock foundation.
The Geneva Drive-In was owned by Veigh Cummings and had a capacity of 624 cars. The theater closed about 1966 and was demolished before 1970. The drive-in was located on the southwest corner of 1300 South State Street, across from where the University Mall now stands.
