CenterPoint Legacy Theatre
Centerville, Utah

The Davis Cultural Arts Center is the result of a partnership of the Rodgers Memorial Theatre, Davis County Arts organizations, the cities of Bountiful and Centerville, and the Davis County Commission. Rodgers Memorial Theatre renamed CenterPoint Legacy Theatre and became the resident theater company of the new facility, which opened with “Hairspray” on 12 February 2011.  The theater features a 525 auditorium with a thrust stage and three-section motorized lift system.  A black box theater can seat up to 200 and an outdoor amphitheater will be added in the future.

In 1923 Tony Duvall purchased the 16-unit Iris Apartment Building and built onto the north side of it a small theater named The Gem. In 1930 Duvall demolished The Gem and replaced it with the larger New Iris Theater and an 8-unit apartment building. The New Iris was later renamed the Vista and then the Desert Star Playhouse.1
