Regency Theatre
Salt Lake City, Utah

ABC Intermountain Theatres opened the Regency Theatre on 19 July 1972.  The $750,000 cinema featured 780 seats and a curved Tecnikote XR 171 screen measuring 50 feet wide by 22 feet high.  Red curtains from R. L. Grosh & Sons rotated behind the screen instead of gathering at the sides.  The booth featured dual Century 35/70mm projectors with Christie CHF xenon consoles and 3,000-watt bulbs.  Cineplex Odeon relegated the Regency to dollar theater service on 6 June 1989, then closed it permanently on 25 March 1990.  The former theater was later remodeled into a three-story office building.

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]
