Legacy Theatre
Salt Lake City, Utah

The 500-seat Legacy Theatre was built in the former Grand Ballroom of the Hotel Utah as the building was converted into the Joseph Smith Memorial Building.  The theater opened on 3 July 1993, presenting the Church-produced film “Legacy” in 70mm six-channel Dolby Stereo on a 63-foot-wide screen.  The Legacy Theatre was the last theater in the Salt Lake area to present traditional “five perf” 70mm films.  The first digital projector in Utah was installed at the Legacy Theatre for “Joseph Smith, The Prophet of the Restoration,” which opened on 17 December 2005.

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]
