Gem Theatre
Salt Lake City, Utah

The Liberty Theatre, later known as the Gem, opened 1 February 1911 at a cost of $20,000.  The “photo-playhouse” was to be “one of the most modern motion picture houses in the west,” including “many new features which have not before been incorporated in plans for a motion picture house.”  Private loges allowed patrons to enjoy “the exclusiveness and comforts of the opera box.”

In July 2004, ground was broken for the Union Heights development at 7800 South and 1300 East in Sandy.1 The project includes a 16-screen theater, an office building, four retail buildings, and a 3-level parking structure.2

The Century 16 Union Heights theater opened on 20 December 2005 with a "Canned" Film Festival, benefitting the Utah Food Bank.  Moviegoers were treated to a free movie in exchange for canned or non-perishable food items.  The grand opening was held on the following day, 21 December 2005.  The multiplex features stadium seating, Dolby Digital sound, and THX certification in all 16 theaters.
