Utah III

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Built in 1933, just across the street from the Utah Theatre, the this originally opened as the Stadium Theatre. It was renamed the Studio Theatre in 1934.

Despite a lobby redecoration in June 1939, the theater was somewhat austere, and once refered to by a movie critic as a ‘long isle with seats’.

The theatre was last operated by Plitt as a discount theatre, called the Utah III (Utah I & II were in the former Utah Theatre opposite).

Eventually, the theatre was converted into a store, and continues to operate as such today.

I hate to say it, but you have the wrong building. The Studio was in the Bamberger Building. The space is empty. The store front has art work, placed there for the Olympics.

Mike Rogers, the Utah III AKA Studio was a single screen, it was across the street from the Utah Theatre that was converted from a single screen to a double. Thus renaming the Studio to the Utah III.
