Villa Theatre
Salt Lake City, Utah

The historic Villa Theatre opened in 1949, showing the black and white film "Prince of Foxes."  In 1961 the Villa became the only theater in Utah to show Cinerama.  The theater closed 18 February 2003 and has been renovated as a beautiful rug gallery.

The Ranch Drive-In, located at 7680 West 2400 South, opened sometime before 1958 and closed between the summers of 1960 and 1961.  Even though the theater closed over 40 years ago, the Ranch Drive-In has not been built over.  The projection and snack bar buildings are still standing and location of the screen tower can still be seen from aerial photos.
