The 500-seat Legacy Theatre was built in the former Grand Ballroom of the Hotel Utah as the building was converted into the Joseph Smith Memorial Building. The theater opened on 3 July 1993, presenting the Church-produced film “Legacy” in 70mm six-channel Dolby Stereo on a 63-foot-wide screen. The Legacy Theatre was the last theater in the Salt Lake area to present traditional “five perf” 70mm films. The first digital projector in Utah was installed at the Legacy Theatre for “Joseph Smith, The Prophet of the Restoration,” which opened on 17 December 2005.
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.
