Hi to all, my husband and I have been researching Salt Lake City in 1944. We came across a white pages for that year that listed my husbands mother as a sales woman at the Studio Theatre. She lived r2758 5th East in Salt Lake. My husbands father, whom he never met, played as a musician in the theatre. Do you recall Army Air Corp musicians playing during intermission? His name was Howard Price and he told my mother-in-law he was from Grand Island, Nebraska. We have searched and could find nothing. Maybe someone could help us with any info. Thanks in advance, Lane Christian

I managed the Studio back in the mid-70's. My first night was a Friday when we opened "The Godfather" and a short called "The Crunchbird". The thing was we had fired the whole crew the week before and I had hired 2 girls and 1 boy and none of us knew exactly what to do. We sold out three shows that day and when we figured out the reports we came out to the penny! I wish I could remember the names of the cashier and the head concession girl, they were very smart as well as good looking.
The latter probably why I hired them.

I just happened on this site after Googling, what a find!
I heard when I started working there, that it had been a bank once several years before becoming a theater. I also remember "Love's Diamonds/Jewelry", that was next door to the theater.
I worked at this theater when it was the Utah III. Many memories of working there, mostly as a cashier sometimes as a candy person.
I remember one time of the power going out in the summertime, we had a full house and were showing 2 films--"Chapter Two" starring James Caan and Marsha Mason, and "Meatballs" starring Bill Murray.
My friend the assistant manager was running around trying to find a flashlight (our emergency lights/motion lights weren't working) and ending up going across the street to the Utah I and II to borrow one. If I remember right, they had power, but we didn't.
I can honestly say it was my favorite job, and I truly miss it.
