Pioneer Memorial Theatre
Salt Lake City, Utah

The Pioneer Memorial Theatre was built as “the modern counterpart of the old Salt Lake Theater,” a tribute to “the thousands who sat enthralled within its walls” and to the “traditions of our Pioneer theatrical heritage.”  Although only parts of the exterior bear any resemblance, Pioneer Memorial was to be “pleasantly reminiscent of the Salt Lake Theater in architectural design.”   Construction on both building began on the 1st of July, the original in 1861 and the latter in 1960.

Mann Theatres opened the Cache Valley 3 in Fall 1976 as part of a national expansion program.[1] The three-screen multiplex had the same floorplan as the Alameda Plaza 3 in Pocatello and the Yellowstone Plaza Triplex in Idaho Falls.[2] Carmike Cinemas acquired all Utah theaters in the Mann Theatres chain in the mid-1990s.[3]

Westates Theatres took over management of the Cache Valley 3 on 16 February 2002, after Carmike pulled out of the theater due to its bankruptcy. Westates spent $50,000 to $100,000 on upgrading projection and sound equipment in the cinema.

In 2002 Westates Theatres began negotiations with JP Realty, owner of the Cache Valley Mall, for the construction of a new six-screen stadium seating multiplex to replace the aging triplex.
