Abravanel Hall
Salt Lake City, Utah

The Bicentennial Symphony Hall opened on 14 September 1979, with guest conductor Stanislaw Skrowaczeski directing the Utah Symphony.   On 4 January 1993, the facility was renamed Abravanel Hall, in honor of Maurice Abravanel, who conducted the Utah Symphony for 32 years and was credited with transforming the part-time community orchestra into a nationally respected symphony.

The Cinemark Movies 6 was built in 1980 as part of the new Layton Hills Mall.1  In 1990, Cinemark built the Movies 10 theater next to Movies 6. In December 1994, Cinemark announced that it would demolish Movies 6 in order to build a new 16-screen theater.2 The new theater was later named Tinseltown and had only 7 screens instead of the originally-planned 16.
