Jimmy Osmond, what’s you favourite cinema?

There is a little movie theater called The SCERA Theatre that I particularly liked. It’s out on South State Street in Orem, just south of Salt Lake City, in Utah.

Which films did you see there?

I took my girlfriend there and we watched a movie: Disney’s The Little Mermaid. It later became our movie – afterwards, she’d even nicknamed my Mercedes convertible: ‘Flounder’. That’s when and where I knew I wanted to marry her. We are now celebrating our 25th anniversary, so that is why that little theater, The SCERA, is still my all-time favorite.
