Famous Films Theatre
Ogden, Utah

When the Glen Brothers Piano Company opened its new store in 1923, the third floor included a 200-seat recital space named Chickering Hall.  The acoustics were described as “absolutely perfect.”  In 1975 the building was remodeled into the Washington Fair, a mall with a dozen specialty shops.  The stage on the third floor became the Laughing Gypsy Comedy Theatre and later the Famous Films Theatre.

Cinemark at Crossroads Plaza
Salt Lake City, Utah

Cinemark USA announced plans in 1999 to build a new 15-screen multiplex at Crossroads Plaza.   The 3,000-seat theater would have included Utah's first IMAX screen.   Construction was to begin in spring, with a Christmas 2000 opening.   Plans stalled and the cinema was never built.   Demolition of Crossroads Plaza began in 2007 and the mall was replaced by City Creek Center.
