Kingsbury Hall
Salt Lake City, Utah

The University of Utah dedicated its first auditorium, Kingsbury Hall, on 22 May 1930.   The $275,000 assembly hall was funded by the State of Utah and named in honor of Joseph T. Kingsbury, who served as President of the University from 1897 until 1926.   Kingsbury Hall is one of nine buildings in the University Circle historic district, which was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.  The auditorium was built with a projection booth and an organ loft, to accommodate silent films.

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.
