Sugar Factory Playhouse
West Jordan, Utah

After the city bowery was demolished to make way for a new fire station, West Jordan Theater Arts opened the 230-seat Sugar Factory Playhouse in the city's old sugar factory.  Inspired by Trolley Square, the West Jordan City Council planned to renovate the sugar factory and turn it into a cultural arts center with a larger auditorium, amphitheater, art gallery, conference center, reception hall, and retail center.  Expensive seismic upgrades eventually doomed the project and the sugar factory was demolished by the end of 2010.

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]
