10 great places to see a classic cinema
USA Today, 22 November 2001
The Villa Theatre in Salt Lake City, Utah was included in a list of 10 historic movie palaces in the United States that still are entrancing audiences. The list was compiled by Ross Melnick and Patrick Crowley, founders of the cinema
Of the Villa, the article said, "Several mid-1990s renovations restored the theater's original 1949 murals and neon-laden facade, and with Utah's largest screen (at 93 feet), 'this 1,000-seat jewel is the last historic movie house operating in the city and is still one of the best places to see a movie in America.'"
