Scott McQuarrie, a Utah County developer, approached Sandy City in 2006 about building a 2,400-seat Broadway theater southwest of City Hall. The development was named “The Proscenium”, after the Greek innovation to better frame theater performances. The announcement created a rivalry between Sandy and Salt Lake City, which had also had plans for a Broadway theater. Funding for the Proscenium dried up after the credit market tumbled in late 2008.
In 1976, Howard Coleman created the Lakeside Theaters by remodeling an
existing building. The theater originally showed first-run films, but
switched to sub-run in about 1985. The theater closed on 9 June 2000
because of "declining attendance and competition from the chain movie
theaters" with stadium seating and digital sound. The building, owned
by Kier Corp., was likely to be converted to retail.
