The First Vision Theater

Experience the marvelous events of Joseph Smith’s First Vision beautifully depicted on a 240° circular screen that surrounds the audience.

The theater experience begins every 10-15 minutes and patrons are seated on a first-come-first-serve basis.

The film draws from all nine existing accounts of the First Vision recorded during Joseph Smith’s lifetime, four written or dictated by the Prophet himself and five written by those who heard the story from him personally. While each account tells the same story, each emphasizes and reveals certain nuances about Joseph’s time in the woods that would become known as the Sacred Grove. Visitors of all ages and religious backgrounds will find the experience in the First Vision Theater informative, entertaining, and inspiring.
