Organ Loft
South Salt Lake, Utah

Lawrence Bray opened the Organ Loft in 1946 after installing the theater organ from the Utah Theatre in his aunt's former chicken coop.  The Organ Loft holds silent film festivals several times a year, but makes most of its income from banquets and wedding receptions.  The theater's organ has 2,400 pipes ranging in size from 8 inches to 16 feet.

The Pages Lane Theater was established in 1991 by Ralph Rodgers, who previoulsy had managed the Promised Valley Playhouse in Salt Lake City and the Polynesian Cultural Center in Hawaii.

After Ralph Rodgers died in 1996 the Rodgers family donated the theater to the Davis County Performing Arts Corporation, a non-profit group led by real estate developer Bill Davies. The theater reopened in 1997 as the Rodgers Memorial Theatre.

Rodgers Memorial Theatre has experienced "phenomenal growth" because of "increased performances, interior upgrades and popular productions" and "community donations of time and money". The theater hopes to move to a larger facility.
