Isis Theater
Salt Lake City, Utah

Open in 1908, the Isis Theatre was one of the first motion picture theaters in Salt Lake City.  Its manager in 1910 was Max Florence, who a year later tried to blackmail the LDS Church by selling amateur photos of the Salt Lake Temple interior.  Dan Kostopulos, a benefactor of underprivileged children, later renamed it the Broadway Theatre.  In a 1976 press conference, Palace Theatre operator Lee Harper complained bitterly of persecution, made acusations of police brutality, threatened the life of a local judge, and accused the LDS Church of being involved with the assassinations of John F. Kennedy and Martin Luthar King.

Westates Theatres opened the Sunset Corner Stadium 8 Theatres on 15 June 2001.  The eight-screen multiplex features stadium seating and digital sound in all auditoriums.  All three film digital sound systems are installed in the cinema: DTS, Dolby Digital, and SDDS.  In addition to the main concession stand, there is an additional snack bar outside theaters Five and Six. Opening day movies included Atlantis and Tomb Raider.[1]

“The place was packed,” observed a moviegoer who attended the opening night, although he goes on to exaggerate. “The concession lines were a mile long.  Perhaps even a mile and a half long . . .”
[1]

Another person commented, “The facility is nice, and the price was still reasonable.”

The Sunset Corner Stadium 8 was the first stadium seating theater in Southern Utah.  Its popularity prompted Westates to add stadium seating to the St. George Cinema 6 and the Cedar City Cinema 8 and to build the Pineview Stadium 10.

The Sunset Corner Stadium 8 is part of a new development
owned by the Gardner and Jennings families on the corner of Sunset Boulevard and Bluff Street.  Westates Theatres, a family-owned business that started with one screen in 1958, leases the building.[1]
