Art-house showdown: Utah flavor vs. New York slick
Salt Lake Tribune, 8 August 2003
Madstone Theaters targets "child-free couples" with "independent and
art-house films, concessions that go beyond popcorn and Milk Duds
(including beer, if the state allows it), and special events like film
series and discussion groups . . . The renovated theaters boast new
projection and sound equipment, rows of seats broadly spaced so
moviegoers can walk past without bumping knees, a lounge area with
tables and big-screen TV, and a sparkling lobby opening out to Trolley
Square's southern foyer and fountain."
Businessman Paul Liacopoulos bought the Tower in 2000. The Salt Lake
Film Society, a nonprofit organization, operates the Tower and later
took over the Broadway Centre 6 downtown.
