This 2 1/2 story brick home was built in 1895. Its site orientation is unusual, being set far back from the street down a long driveway. The English Tudor half-timbering is also unusual in a house that is otherwise Victorian-influenced, as evident from the front portico, large front windows, south bay window and multiple gables. The home has beautiful hand-grained woodwork in the stairway and hall. The foundation is reportedly unique in that the stones below ground are not cemented but laid loosely to support the house and keep it level. A fireplace, in the central room, was designed with an air intake pipe that brought in outside air and heated it in pipes in the back of the fireplace, then carried it to two of the upstairs rooms. That has been replaced by a modern heating system.

This building of sawed logs, cement, and stucco was constructed by James and Mable Ellett in 1947 and operated as the Ellett Theatre.
On March 19, 1956, the Elletts deeded 30 percent interest of the building to Edwin (Ted) and Alberta Oldroyd. Together their families operated the theater until TV came into Wayne County. Until 1971, John and Maida Giles and Stanley and Hilma Brinkerhoff also worked in the business.
The Brinkerhoff family purchased the business in October 1971 and renamed it Wayne Theatre. With the help of others, they operated it until September 1994. James and Nanette Anderson purchased the business, changed the old projection machines to a one-reel operation, and improved the building. Later they obtained a grant from the Utah Historical Society and remodeled the building which is being successfully operated as a movie theater.
Mormon pioneers arrived at Spanish Fork in 1850 with Enoch Reece claiming 400 acres in the river bottoms two miles west of the current town, building the first house and starting the first business of raising cattle. In the winter of 1850-51, a few families settled along the Spanish Fork River in dugout homes in the high riverbank. By the end of 1852 the population along the river had grown to over 100 families. In 1854, Fort Saint Luke was built on the present site of Spanish Fork. In January, 1855, the area of Spanish Fork was incorporated. Soon after Icelandic immigrants established the first permanent Icelandic settlement in the United States. The town continued to grow to over 1,000 to 1860. The main prosperity of the area was agricultural crops and livestock, followed by saw and flour mills. These hardy pioneers dug an irrigation system to farm the rich soil along the Spanish Fork River for their orchards and fields. Their efforts were the foundation of the continuing prosperity Spanish Fork enjoys today.
