New Shakespeare Theatre
Cedar City, Utah

On 16 February 2012, the Utah Shakespeare Festival announced plans to build a $26.5 million Shakespeare theater on 200 West, between Center Street and College Avenue.  The new 900-seat theater will feature amenities missing from the current Adams Memorial Shakespearean Theatre, such as public restrooms and a backstage area.  A retractable roof will expand the season and allow for possible year-round usage.  The playhouse will allow for additional performances, which will draw an additional 30,000 patrons to Cedar City and increase the economic impact of the Festival by an estimated $8 million annually.

The Redwood Drive-In Theatre was built by United Intermountain Theaters at a cost of $140,000.  Beesley Construction Co. was the contractor and the scheduled completion date was 15 July 1949.  The 12 1/2 acre theater featured a diamond-shaped lot with a 46 by 64-foot screen and a capacity of 600 cars.  There was a picnic ground and a playground for children.  Ramps were numbered and lighted, and featured a combination speaker and heater.  Moviegoers could press a button on the speaker to signal for refreshments.[1]
