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.
