CenterPoint Legacy Theatre
Centerville, Utah

The Davis Cultural Arts Center is the result of a partnership of the Rodgers Memorial Theatre, Davis County Arts organizations, the cities of Bountiful and Centerville, and the Davis County Commission. Rodgers Memorial Theatre renamed CenterPoint Legacy Theatre and became the resident theater company of the new facility, which opened with “Hairspray” on 12 February 2011.  The theater features a 525 auditorium with a thrust stage and three-section motorized lift system.  A black box theater can seat up to 200 and an outdoor amphitheater will be added in the future.

The State theater was located at 228 South State Street in Salt Lake City, Utah. It opened about 1928. In 1949 the theater was operated by Joseph L. Lawrence and David K. Edwards*, who also operated the Uptown, Rialto, and who built the Villa Theatre. In 1958, the license of the State was suspended for 60 days because of a "complaint or charge as made by Chief of Police W. Cleon Skousen".*
