Children's Theatre
South Salt Lake, Utah

Since 1985, the Children's Theatre had never obtained a long term lease or owned a building.  After searching for a permanent home for over three years, the Children's Theatre announced in June 2011 the purchase of the Avalon Theatre in South Salt Lake.  The theater's new home will feature a 185-seat auditorium with carpeted aisles, stadium seating, a thrust stage, and 17-foot high ceilings.  For information on how you can help, visit the Children's Theatre website.

The Olympus Starships twin theater was located in the Olympus Hills Mall and featured Dolby Stereo in the left auditorium.  The projection rooms were visible from the lobby and the auditoriums were designed to look like the inside of a space ship.

On 11 September 1992 one of the Olympus Starship's two screens was devoted to showing art films, working with together with the Tower theater.1

The theater closed about 2000 and the area was leveled and converted to retail.
