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.
The Academy Theater was built in the late 1930s by Joseph L. Lawrence
and David K. Edwards, who also built the Villa, Southeast, and Murray
Theaters in the Salt Lake area. The building may have been a skate rink
or the main office of a utility company before it became a theater. Carmike
Cinemas closed the theater on 10 September 1998 after opening a new 12-plex
in the same general area.
