Article Summary:

On 4 August 1997, owner Shere Young put the Alhambra Theatre up for sale for $250,000.  The theater had been showing family movies six days a week at discount prices.  After operating the theater for six years, Young said it was time to move on to other projects.  "This is one I'm tired of.  It's a baby-sitting job.  It's fun, but it's hard work, a lot of hard work.''  
Attendance at the Alhambra dropped a little durring 1997, which Young attributes to a poor selection of PG and PG-13 movies.  Moviegoers in Pleasant Grove don't come out for R-rated movies and a higher percentage of recent movies are rated R.
