Cedar Theatre Reborn in 2012

Viewing: Photo | Street View

This theatre was open from at least 1914 as the Thorley Theatre, which it was known as at least into the mid-to-late-1940’s.

It was renamed the Cedar Theatre at some point and was twinned in the early-1970’s. This theatre was operated by Westates Theatres until 2005.

After laying unused for seven years, it has been renovated and under new ownership had a ‘soft’ reopening on July 14, 2012 with screenings of “Rio” and “Gone in 60 Seconds”. It is set to fully reopen in August 2012.

How would everyone feel if the Cedar City Twin was turned into a theater with a stage for plays etc?

I understand that Cedar City has many theaters because of the Festival however, it would be a community theater. Making it available for the General public of Cedar City/Southern Utah region.

Let me know what you think. email me:

There is a new email that you can get ahold of me at with your ideas of how this can be turned into a community theater/venue for Cedar City, Utah.

Looks like it’s still closed. The theater is at the end of Main Street in this circa 1940s photo.

I do not know if that building is still standing. so much has been done with that property across the street from this location.

The theater is going for almost 500 thousand. Personally I do not think it is worth quite that much.
