After the city bowery was demolished to make way for a new fire station, West Jordan Theater Arts opened the 230-seat Sugar Factory Playhouse in the city's old sugar factory. Inspired by Trolley Square, the West Jordan City Council planned to renovate the sugar factory and turn it into a cultural arts center with a larger auditorium, amphitheater, art gallery, conference center, reception hall, and retail center. Expensive seismic upgrades eventually doomed the project and the sugar factory was demolished by the end of 2010.
The Carriage Square Trolley theater was located at 1785 West 4120 South
and had two screens. The theater was built by Trolley Theaters,
but later managed by Plitt and Cineplex Odeon. Cineplex Odeon closed
the theater in January 1988 because the theater couldn't compete showing
first-run movies. They reopened the theater in July 1988 as a dollar
theater and renamed it Carriage Square Cinemas. The theater was
later closed and converted into a gym.
