Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Granada Theater, located at 241 South Main, in Salt Lake City, opened sometime around 1918 and was later renamed the American. In addition to its balcony, the theater was known to have an upstairs ballroom.

The Granada was later converted into office or retail space, and eventually demolished.

Could this have become the W.T. Grant downtown store? I remember years ago somebody saying that building had a ballroom upstairs, which I always thought was a strange thing for a Grant’s store to have.

This 1913 trade article shows an American Theatre in Salt Lake City, which suggests that American, and not Granada, was the original name: archive
