Dancing at the Cinedome?

Ogden Standard Examiner, 8 June 2001

Article Summary:

Travis Izatt, owner of The Outlaw club, wants to turn the Cinedome into the "Rock 'n' Rodeo", a concert and dance hall. The private club would have a country music club in one dome and hip-hop and rock in the other. The clubs would also bring n national music acts. The 70-foot movie screens would be left in place to show second-run movies during the week for free to all ages. A sound wall and a new road would be built to ease concerns of nearby residents.

"There's no where in Utah that will be able to touch what we would be capable of doing." Izatt said. "We've been trying to come up with a building for years." From a visibility and marketing standpoint, the Cinedome is incredible.

The State has approved everything, but the Riverdale City Council questioned the mixture of alcohol and a quiet neighborhood.

Izatt thinks the real issue is visibility. "They don't want a concert hall to be the first thing people see when they come to Riverdale."
