Lehi City Arts Center
Lehi, Utah

After the John Hutchings Museum of Natural History moved to the Memorial Building in 1996, the former museum was renovated and reopened as the Lehi City Arts Center.   Limited by its 100-seat auditorium with a combined green and dressing room, the Lehi Arts Council announced plans in 1998 for a new performing arts complex with a 1,800 seat Broadway theater, a smaller 248-seat theater, and a theater-in-the-round.  Pledges were secured for $6 million of the necessary $15 million, but fund-raising grew difficult due to competition from other Utah County arts initiatives and the 2002 Winter Olympics Games.  In 2003, Lehi City unveiled a $150,000 renovation of the existing arts center.

Early 1980s  
 

The King Koal Theatre opened in the early 1980s in retail space that had been intended for a large men's store. The owner of the Crown Theatre and Price Theatre changed plans to build a new theater on 100 North, where the Olivetto Complex is now located, after the clothing store tenant pulled out of the development. Mike Johnson purchased all three Price theaters about 1996, after working in them since about 1970.[1]
