Tuacahn Amphitheatre
Ivins, Utah

After moving to St. George, Doug Stewart began thinking about creating an outdoor theatrical venue to provide night entertainment for the three million visitors to Zion National Park. Through his efforts, the Heritage Arts Foundation was established and construction on the Tuacahn Amphitheater and Center for the Performing Arts began. The 1,920-seat amphitheater opened on 5 April 1995 with a performance by the Utah Symphony and was dedicated by LDS President Gordon B. Hinckley three days later.

Art House Cinema 502, a micro-cinema on Historic 25th Street, opened on 4 August 2011, showing Rubin and Ed.  The number in the theater's name refers to its square footage.  AHC502 showcases “under the radar independent, foreign, and documentary film gems,” filling a void in the Ogden area and sparing its patrons a drive to Salt Lake.  “Cinema 502 gives you all you expect of a big box movie theatre within an intimate setting.  This micro cinema embodies the spirit of true independent film exhibition.”[2, 4]  Attendance fluctuates depending on the movie, with some titles selling out and others struggling to draw an audience.[1]

The lobby is “about the size of a suburban bathroom.”  The auditorium accommodates 28 in tiered rows of 1938 Art Deco seats.  Ambiance is a cross of modern and vintage, with exposed historic brick, glass art, and a "sculptural" Coke-Cola cooler.  Technical specifications include DLP digital projection, Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound, and Blu-ray/digital playback.  In a Kickstarter campaign, Joel Layton comments, “Frankly our audio blows away most mainstream multi-plexes.”[1, 2, 3, 4]

One moviegoer described her experience.  “The art house is an unassuming building that i would have narrowly missed . . .  Sitting in this tiny theater makes you feel like you found some sort of secret place, a welcome retreat from the overcrowded over-commercialized big box theaters.”[4]
