Isis Theater
Salt Lake City, Utah

Open in 1908, the Isis Theatre was one of the first motion picture theaters in Salt Lake City.  Its manager in 1910 was Max Florence, who a year later tried to blackmail the LDS Church by selling amateur photos of the Salt Lake Temple interior.  Dan Kostopulos, a benefactor of underprivileged children, later renamed it the Broadway Theatre.  In a 1976 press conference, Palace Theatre operator Lee Harper complained bitterly of persecution, made acusations of police brutality, threatened the life of a local judge, and accused the LDS Church of being involved with the assassinations of John F. Kennedy and Martin Luthar King.

Beverly Olsen opened the Terrace Plaza Playhouse in November 1992 with three separate productions, Scrooge, Babes in Toyland, and The Wondrous Night.  Olsen and her partners spent $300,000 remodeling a Smiths supermarket that had sat vacant for five years into a 315-seat theater with a thrust stage.  The theater was named after Washington Terrace, the southern Ogden suburb in which it is located.  Partners for the non-profit theater were Blaine and Beverly Olsen of Fruit Heights, Kim and Jacci Florence of Layton, Joseph and Tami Olsen of South Ogden, and Rob and Patti Johnson of Sandy.  Plans for the project included a year-round acting school and a mini-mall in the remainder of the building.[1]
