Adams Shakespearean Theatre
Cedar City, Utah

In the early 1960s, business owners worried that the proposed Interstate 15 would divert tourists from Cedar City as they travelled to Zions and Bryce Canyon national parks.  Fred C. Adams, a professor at Southern Utah State College, thought a theater festival might encourage passing tourists to exit the new freeway.  For its first season in 1962, the Utah Shakespeare Festival used a makeshift outdoor platform as a stage, with the audience seated in folding chairs on the lawn.  In 1977, the festival built the Adams Shakespearean Theatre, a replica of the original Globe Theatre.

Local art cinema to keep 'Passion'

By David Nelson
Herald Journal, 06 March 2004

Article Summary:
Westates Theatres plans to keep "The Passion of the Christ" at the 235-seat Logan Art Cinema even though its smaller capacity has resulted in several sold-out showings during its two-week run.

The Logan Art Cinema was specifically chosen to host the independent film and was equipped with a new digital sound system and an updated projector in preparation for the movie.

Westates overstaffed the art theater last weekend in anticipation of the large crowds that set the attendance records.
