New Shakespeare Theatre
Cedar City, Utah

On 16 February 2012, the Utah Shakespeare Festival announced plans to build a $26.5 million Shakespeare theater on 200 West, between Center Street and College Avenue.  The new 900-seat theater will feature amenities missing from the current Adams Memorial Shakespearean Theatre, such as public restrooms and a backstage area.  A retractable roof will expand the season and allow for possible year-round usage.  The playhouse will allow for additional performances, which will draw an additional 30,000 patrons to Cedar City and increase the economic impact of the Festival by an estimated $8 million annually.

Stadium Cinemas was the dream of Lew Johnson, who owned a twin theater in Alaska.  After his sudden death in January 2000, his family continued to build the Stadium Cinemas and opened it in May 2000.  The 1,000-seat theater complex was built to a high standard of quality.  It was the second all-THX-certified theater in Utah and features stadium seating and digital sound in all six auditoriums.  Space has been left on either side of the 22,000 square foot building so that the theater can be expanded to ten screens in the future.  Stadium Cinemas is owned by Darrel Rosingana and Kris Merkley and was the first business in the Gateway retail center by the 800 South interchange for I-15.[1]
