Regency Theatre
Salt Lake City, Utah

ABC Intermountain Theatres opened the Regency Theatre on 19 July 1972.  The $750,000 cinema featured 780 seats and a curved Tecnikote XR 171 screen measuring 50 feet wide by 22 feet high.  Red curtains from R. L. Grosh & Sons rotated behind the screen instead of gathering at the sides.  The booth featured dual Century 35/70mm projectors with Christie CHF xenon consoles and 3,000-watt bulbs.  Cineplex Odeon relegated the Regency to dollar theater service on 6 June 1989, then closed it permanently on 25 March 1990.  The former theater was later remodeled into a three-story office building.

Article Summary:
For several years now the Logan area has felt the absence of alternative, arthouse cinema.

The recent opening of the Providence Stadium 8 theaters has now given Westates Theatres enough flexibility to to devote the Reel Time Theatre to art films.  The name of the theater will even be changed to Logan Art Cinema.

The most recent source of art cinema in the Logan area was the Alternative Cinema club on campus, but the volunteer effort collapsed about 1996.  Afterwards, Marty Spicer revived independent film showings for a time at the Main Theater in Smithfield.
