Children's Theatre
South Salt Lake, Utah

Since 1985, the Children's Theatre had never obtained a long term lease or owned a building.  After searching for a permanent home for over three years, the Children's Theatre announced in June 2011 the purchase of the Avalon Theatre in South Salt Lake.  The theater's new home will feature a 185-seat auditorium with carpeted aisles, stadium seating, a thrust stage, and 17-foot high ceilings.  For information on how you can help, visit the Children's Theatre website.

Bringing Down the House

Emery County Progress, 22 April 2003

Article Summary:
When the city of Huntington demolished two abandoned buildings in April 2003, the Star Theatre next door was ironically playing the movie "Bringing Down the House."  The city condemned the buildings, known as the Gibb property, because they were a safety hazard and major eyesore on Huntington's Main Street.  The city will put the property up for bid so it can recoup the costs of asbestos removal and demolition.

Percy Mounteer, who owns the Star Theatre, wants to buy the property and use the front half of the lot as parking for the theater.  This would resolve a safety issue with patrons who park across the street and then jaywalk across to the theater.  Not long ago three children were almost hit as they crossed the street.
