Children's Theatre
South Salt Lake, Utah

Since 1985, the Children's Theatre had never obtained a long term lease or owned a building.  After searching for a permanent home for over three years, the Children's Theatre announced in June 2011 the purchase of the Avalon Theatre in South Salt Lake.  The theater's new home will feature a 185-seat auditorium with carpeted aisles, stadium seating, a thrust stage, and 17-foot high ceilings.  For information on how you can help, visit the Children's Theatre website.

The Providence 8 Stadium opened in November 2002 and is the centerpiece of the Spring Creek Village at 517 West 100 North. The multiplex features eight auditoriums with wall-to-wall screens, stadium seating, and digital sound. The auditoriums range in size from 140 to 300 seats.

The Providence 8 Stadium was built by Westates Theatres at a time when most other theater chains were entering bankruptcy. Tony Rudman, Jr., vice president of Westates Theatres explained, "Construction is down which means costs are down. Interest rates are down which means loan rates are down. The bankers say, the five largest exhibitors have gone bankrupt, why should we lend to you? And I say, Because were not them."1
