By 1986, the Cinema may have been the last “porner” in Utah. but in its last years, the former State Theater operated as the Esquire Theatre and showed porn, at least through December, 1972, when I left Salt Lake for the navy. There was also another little porner called The Palace that operated for some time around the late ‘60s-early '70s. I think it was in the same general area as the Cinema.

This was the only porn theater in Utah. It had closed in 1986(prior to Cinema in Your Face) as a porn theater and actually got a write-up in Variety as “Utah’s Only Porner Shuts For Good”. (Today, it is almost impossible to get porn in Utah, even by mail-order. At the time this theater operated, porn videos were illegal to rent or buy in Utah.)
