The Villa Theater is best known for its elegant neon-laden facade and sign, as well as its 93-foot curved screen, the largest in the state of Utah.
Opened in 1949, the Villa was later used as the home of Cinemiracle and Cinerama in Salt Lake City, with its three Cinerama booths still remaining in place. In fact, the theater’s original procenium, stage, and screen are still intact, and hidden behind the large, curved screen.
The Villa was last operated by Carmike Cinemas, which renovated the old movie house in 1996.
Due to Carmike’s recent bankruptcy reorganization, the Villa was closed in February 2003. It has been converted since then into a rug showroom.
