Trolley Corners
Salt Lake City, Utah

Theater Closed

The Trolley Corners Theatres closed after their final showings on 3 June 2004. The movie theater complex opened on 23 December 1977, featuring an 800 seat theater with stadium seating, 70mm, and large murals of "Star Wars" and "Sound of Music". Downstairs were two 315 seat theaters with murals of classic movie stars. The theater has been gutted and replaced by a fitness center.

The Oak Hills Drive-In opened in 1951 and was located at 2775 East 1000 South, just southeast of the Hogle Zoo.

Residents living just south of the Oak Hills Drive-In could have free movies with sound by paying the $50 installation fee for a monaural speaker connection.1

About 1965 the Oak Hills Drive-In was demolished and replaced by a new housing subdivision. Fox Intermountain Theatres, which operated the theater, replaced it bybuilding the Olympus Drive-In at 5600 South and 900 East.2
