The 500-seat Legacy Theatre was built in the former Grand Ballroom of the Hotel Utah as the building was converted into the Joseph Smith Memorial Building. The theater opened on 3 July 1993, presenting the Church-produced film “Legacy” in 70mm six-channel Dolby Stereo on a 63-foot-wide screen. The Legacy Theatre was the last theater in the Salt Lake area to present traditional “five perf” 70mm films. The first digital projector in Utah was installed at the Legacy Theatre for “Joseph Smith, The Prophet of the Restoration,” which opened on 17 December 2005.
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.
