The 600-seat Quinn Theatre, managed by George Quinn, was listed in the 1914 Gus Hill Directory. It played roadshows, vaudeville and pictures. The 1913 Cahn guide had listed George Quinn as the manager of the Dewey Theatre. The Dewey and the Quinn are both mentioned in the December 4, 1913 issue of Miner’s Magazine, the organ of the Western Federation of Miners.

Treasure Mountain Home: Park City Revisited, by George A. Thompson, says that Frank Collins and George Quinn began building the Quinn Theatre in July, 1913. An ad for the theater dated August 16 touts movies appearing the following day, so it must have been a very quick build.
