Lehi City Arts Center
Lehi, Utah

After the John Hutchings Museum of Natural History moved to the Memorial Building in 1996, the former museum was renovated and reopened as the Lehi City Arts Center.   Limited by its 100-seat auditorium with a combined green and dressing room, the Lehi Arts Council announced plans in 1998 for a new performing arts complex with a 1,800 seat Broadway theater, a smaller 248-seat theater, and a theater-in-the-round.  Pledges were secured for $6 million of the necessary $15 million, but fund-raising grew difficult due to competition from other Utah County arts initiatives and the 2002 Winter Olympics Games.  In 2003, Lehi City unveiled a $150,000 renovation of the existing arts center.

By David Nelson
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.
