Adams Shakespearean Theatre
Cedar City, Utah

In the early 1960s, business owners worried that the proposed Interstate 15 would divert tourists from Cedar City as they travelled to Zions and Bryce Canyon national parks.  Fred C. Adams, a professor at Southern Utah State College, thought a theater festival might encourage passing tourists to exit the new freeway.  For its first season in 1962, the Utah Shakespeare Festival used a makeshift outdoor platform as a stage, with the audience seated in folding chairs on the lawn.  In 1977, the festival built the Adams Shakespearean Theatre, a replica of the original Globe Theatre.

The Cinemark 12 in American Fork opened 25 November 2003 and is located in The Meadows Shopping Center, developed by Woodbury Corporation. The new development also includes Super Wal-Mart, Kmart, Target, and Home Depot stores.

The theater has 12 theaters with stadium seating, digital sound, and online ticket sales. "Four larger theaters will hold 285 to 295 individuals, while eight smaller ones will serve 170 to 175. There is room to expand for two large theaters in the future."1

The Cinemark theater opening comes just five months after Westates Theatres opened an 8-screen theater at Thanksgiving Point in Lehi. Westates vice-president T. J. Rudman "said distance between movie theaters was not too much of a concern as long as the population in the area supported it."2
