Pioneer Memorial Theatre
Salt Lake City, Utah

The Pioneer Memorial Theatre was built as “the modern counterpart of the old Salt Lake Theater,” a tribute to “the thousands who sat enthralled within its walls” and to the “traditions of our Pioneer theatrical heritage.”  Although only parts of the exterior bear any resemblance, Pioneer Memorial was to be “pleasantly reminiscent of the Salt Lake Theater in architectural design.”   Construction on both building began on the 1st of July, the original in 1861 and the latter in 1960.

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]
