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.

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]
