QUAKES BUMP THEATER OFF AGENDA

The town council postponed a decision Thursday night on a controversial large-screen theater and instead talked about earthquakes.

The council had held a work meeting earlier in the week to discuss plans for the theater complex, but the next morning a 5.9 earthquake rumbled through the area at the entrance to Zion National Park.The council will call a special meeting on the matter next Tuesday.

The proposed theater has sharply divided the town of 275 people for nearly two years.

World Odyssey, a California-based entertainment company, wants to build a large-screen theater, parking lot and retail shops.
