That contest occurred on its opening day, May 24, 1953 with “With A Song In My Heart” as its first attraction. No selected short subjects were added on its opening day, but Cedar City’s Jack Robb was selected the winner for the contest winning 2 nights at the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas. Also, in connection of the 300-capacity Hyland’s opening, the Parks Theatre had closed its doors for only the summer, but remains opened in the colder days.

The theater had a few multiple gun incidents throughout the 1980 season, including its first incident with a 22 caliber rifle firing in July 1980 and its last incident involving damaged from the screen after gunfire later that December.

It was closed in the 1990s. As of 2021, the parking traces from the parking lot was still attached.
