Crossroads Cinemas
Salt Lake City, Utah

Plitt Theaters opened the Crossroads Cinemas on 20 June 1980.   It was the first new theater in downtown Salt Lake City since the Centre Theatre in 1937.  The triplex was located in the northwest corner of the basement of Crossroads Plaza.  The largest auditorium seated 558 and was equipped for 70mm 6-track Dolby Stereo.   Loews Cineplex closed the theater on 17 June 2000, after deciding not to renew the lease due to declining ticket sales.   The mall was demolished in 2007 to make way for the new City Creek Center development.

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.
