Utah Theatre
Salt Lake City, Utah

In April 1968, Intermountain Theatres announced plans to divide the Utah Theatre into the state's first two-screen theater complex.  The original auditorium, which seated 1765, was divided by adding a floor from the balcony to the proscenium arch.  The new upper-level theater was known as the Penthouse and included the rows of balcony seating and the original, ornate ceiling.

The Century 16 opened on 1 October 1998 with a "Canned Film Festival" benefiting the Utah Food Bank. "Patrons were admitted to the inaugural screening by donating a non-perishable food item." The 57,700 square-foot theater complex was built by Layton Construction and has 16 THX-certified theaters, all with stadium seating and digital sound. The largest auditoriums seat 400 and the smallest 180. The old, domed Century theaters and the Prudential Federal Savings building were demolished to make room for the theater. The site has 8.41 acres.
