Adams Shakespearean Theatre
Cedar City, Utah

In the early 1960s, business owners worried that the proposed Interstate 15 would divert tourists from Cedar City as they travelled to Zions and Bryce Canyon national parks.  Fred C. Adams, a professor at Southern Utah State College, thought a theater festival might encourage passing tourists to exit the new freeway.  For its first season in 1962, the Utah Shakespeare Festival used a makeshift outdoor platform as a stage, with the audience seated in folding chairs on the lawn.  In 1977, the festival built the Adams Shakespearean Theatre, a replica of the original Globe Theatre.

The St. George Cinema 6 Theatres opened in 1984.[1]

In 2004, Westates Theatres spend $500,000 remodeling the Cinema 6 with stadium seating, digital sound, and new projectors. The theater remained open during the renovation, which began after Labor Day and was scheduled to be completed in mid-November 2004. The project was necessary because of low attendance at the theater following the popularity of the new Sunset Corner Stadium 8.

“The people are crying out for stadium seating,” said Lois Blackburn, area manager for Westates. “It's very popular."[2]
