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.

The Cinefour Theatres opened sometime before October 1999[1] and are owned by Kelly Walker, who owns the Walker Cinemas in Perry, and Calvin Timothy.[2]  The theater is equipped with radio reciever headphones for the hearing impaired, but lacks the extra insulation necessary for THX certification.[1]

On 13 August 2004, the Cinefour Theatre held its first gaming night.  A video projector and a Microsoft Xbox video game system were installed in each of the four auditoriums, allowing 16 teams to battle each other in the game “Halo” until early Saturday morning.   Eight 34-inch televisions were placed in the lobby to accommodate large gaming crowds.  Some contestants drove as far as Bountiful to participate.[2]

"Tonight blew our minds," owner Calvin Timothy said.  "We're definitely going to keep doing this."[2]

Cinefour Theatres was one of the first theaters to play video games on a movie screen.  "According to the gal at the licensing company, we're the first theater ever to license XBox with them for a theater," Timothy said.  "It took an act of Congress and a blessing of God."[2]
