Sugar Factory Playhouse
West Jordan, Utah

After the city bowery was demolished to make way for a new fire station, West Jordan Theater Arts opened the 230-seat Sugar Factory Playhouse in the city's old sugar factory.  Inspired by Trolley Square, the West Jordan City Council planned to renovate the sugar factory and turn it into a cultural arts center with a larger auditorium, amphitheater, art gallery, conference center, reception hall, and retail center.  Expensive seismic upgrades eventually doomed the project and the sugar factory was demolished by the end of 2010.

The Airdome Theater in Myton was probably an open-air dance hall with a wooden or concrete floor.1  The theater had been vacant for several years when a fire broke out in the town of Myton on 19 June 1915.  After fighting it for four hours, firefighters finally stopped the fire by tearing down the Airdome Theater and removing its combustible materials from the fire's path.2
