Sugar Factory Playhouse
West Jordan, Utah

After the city bowery was demolished to make way for a new fire station, West Jordan Theater Arts opened the 230-seat Sugar Factory Playhouse in the city's old sugar factory.  Inspired by Trolley Square, the West Jordan City Council planned to renovate the sugar factory and turn it into a cultural arts center with a larger auditorium, amphitheater, art gallery, conference center, reception hall, and retail center.  Expensive seismic upgrades eventually doomed the project and the sugar factory was demolished by the end of 2010.

Organ Loft
South Salt Lake, Utah

Lawrence Bray opened the Organ Loft in 1946 after installing the theater organ from the Utah Theatre in his aunt's former chicken coop.  The Organ Loft holds silent film festivals several times a year, but makes most of its income from banquets and wedding receptions.  The theater's organ has 2,400 pipes ranging in size from 8 inches to 16 feet.
