The Family Center Trolley Theatres had a grand opening on December 21, 1976, showing the premiere of “Joe Panter” a film made by Utahns.

The design of the Family Center was similar to that of the Trolley Square Theatres with nostalgia in decorations, with old time projecters and graphics of celebrities of stars of yesteryear.

The theatre was a million dollar project of Trolley Theatres with two auditoriums seating 400 and two seating 300. The first regular attractions at the new Family Center were “Bugsy Malone”, “Shout At The Devil”, “Baker’s Hawk” and “Murder by Death”.

When Loews took over operation in 1990 they changed from first run attractions to a dollar theatre. Loews closed the theatre in September of 1997 and it was demolished to make way for a new Babies R Us store.
