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 Wynnsong Cinemas were built by Carmike Cinemas in 1996 as part of the Shops at Riverwoods development in the northern part of Provo.  The 42,000-square-foot theater complex had a total seating capacity of 2,240 and featured high-back seats, digital sound in all auditoriums and THX certification in six.  Construction began in April 1996, with the grand opening expected in time for the Christmas 1996 movie season.[1]

The Wynnsong Cinemas were later remodeled to add stadium seating.  The number of THX certified auditoriums has been reduced from six to two.  In June 2006 the Wynnsong Cinemas became the first theater in Utah County to feature digital projection.
