The Trolley Corners Theatre, located across the street from Trolley Square, opened on December 23, 1977.
The theater was part of a $3.5 million complex by the Boyer Company which included Union Bank, Swenson’s Ice Cream Store, office space, a restaurant, and a parking terrace.
The theater was originally owned, in part, by Trolley Theatre partners David Gillette, Mike Place, Tony Rudman and Mae Bay.
The Trolley theater chain was later acquired by Plitt Theatre, which became Cineplex Odeon and then Loews Cineplex. The theater is currently owned and operated by Westates Theatres.
The upstairs auditorium has 775 seats and was "the deepest slope theater in the city" when it first opened.* It is equipped for 70mm, and may be the only theater in the area that still has two projectors in its booth.
The surround speakers are hidden above the auditorium’s doors, which automatically close once the movie begins. On the outside walls of the auditorium are murals of the Sound of Music and Star Wars.
The screen is covered with a curtain that rises upwards. In 1998, Cineplex Odeon replaced all the seats in the auditorium, and in 1999 they installed an 8-channel SDDS sound system in addition to the existing DTS equipment.
Below the main auditorium are two smaller ones with about 315 seats each. Theater 2 did not have stereo sound when the theater was first built, but is now equipped for DTS. Theater 3 is equipped for Dolby Stereo. Neither theater has stadium seating.
The murals in the theater were designed and painted by Dale Christiansen, the general manager of Trolley Theatres.
On September 9, 2001, Westates Theatres took over management of the Trolley Corners theater after Loews Cineplex pulled out of Salt Lake City.
On June 3, 2004, the theater was closed. It is to be converted into a fitness center.
