Kingsbury Hall
Salt Lake City, Utah

The University of Utah dedicated its first auditorium, Kingsbury Hall, on 22 May 1930.   The $275,000 assembly hall was funded by the State of Utah and named in honor of Joseph T. Kingsbury, who served as President of the University from 1897 until 1926.   Kingsbury Hall is one of nine buildings in the University Circle historic district, which was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.  The auditorium was built with a projection booth and an organ loft, to accommodate silent films.

Keith and Jody Renstrom started the Valley Center Playhouse in 1975 after moving to Utah from California.  They rented buildings in downtown Provo and Orem before purchasing the Lindon location in 1984.|1|

"There needed to be a family theater in this area," said Jody Renstrom.  "Our main goal is to provide wholesome entertainment. We have always screened every play and nothing is ever offensive."|1|

At the second annual Star Awards, a black-tie gala fundraiser benefits the SCERA, Keith and Jody Renstrom received a lifetime achievement award.|2|
