Kingsbury Hall
Salt Lake City, Utah

The University of Utah dedicated its first auditorium, Kingsbury Hall, on 22 May 1930.   The $275,000 assembly hall was funded by the State of Utah and named in honor of Joseph T. Kingsbury, who served as President of the University from 1897 until 1926.   Kingsbury Hall is one of nine buildings in the University Circle historic district, which was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.  The auditorium was built with a projection booth and an organ loft, to accommodate silent films.

In October 1998, after the opening of the new 14-screen Cinemark Tinseltown at Newgate Mall, Carmike Cinemas dropped admission prices at the City Square Four theater from $6.25 for adults and $4.25 for children to $1. Attendance at the theater was averaging 50 patrons on a typical night, but after the change it jumped to over 200. At the time, no other theater in the Wasatch Front offered a $1 admission. 2
