Cinedome 70 demolished in Utah
RIVERDALE, UT — Despite the efforts of a Facebook group organized to help save it, the twin-domed Cinedome 70 has fallen victim to the wreckers. Opened in 1970 and closed in 2001, it was once a major venue for 70mm films.
Early Monday morning a wrecking crew began tearing apart and knocking down the old Cinedome 70. And as wood was snapping and it’s 40 year history was being wiped out – we caught up with folks who remember the theater in its glory days. One is former movie goer Sean Poole. “I grew up in Riverdale and this is where we would always come for movies.” April Sajt not only watched movies here – she and her entire family worker here. “My mom worked here. My older sister worked here. I worked here and then my younger sister worked here.”
