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.

Herald Journal, 03 March 2004

Article Summary:
"The Passion of the Christ" set records at the Logan Art Cinema during its opening weekend, selling out one showing on Wednesday, two on Friday, three on Saturday, and two on Sunday.

"This never happens here. Busy for us is like 25 people . . ." said Shelly Burton, manager of the theater.   "Usually, you come to see a show and get your own private screening."

An all-time one-day income record of $5,000 was set by the three sold-out shows on Saturday.
