Salt Lake City, Utah

Theater Closed

The Trolley Corners Theatres closed after their final showings on 3 June 2004. The movie theater complex opened on 23 December 1977, featuring an 800 seat theater with stadium seating, 70mm, and large murals of "Star Wars" and "Sound of Music". Downstairs were two 315 seat theaters with murals of classic movie stars. The theater has been gutted and replaced by a fitness center.

The Pioneer Twin Drive-In was located at 1255 South State Street, in the rapidly growing southeast section of Provo.  A Utah County developer purchased the 20-acre property in May 2000 with plans to build a grocery store, strip malls, and fast-food restaurants.
