The Trolley Corners Theatres closed after their final showings on 3 June 2004. The movie theater complex opened on 23 December 1977, featuring an 800 seat theater with stadium seating, 70mm, and large murals of "Star Wars" and "Sound of Music". Downstairs were two 315 seat theaters with murals of classic movie stars. The theater has been gutted and replaced by a fitness center.
The Academy Theater was built in the late 1930s by Joseph L. Lawrence
and David K. Edwards, who also built the Villa, Southeast, and Murray
Theaters in the Salt Lake area. The building may have been a skate rink
or the main office of a utility company before it became a theater. Carmike
Cinemas closed the theater on 10 September 1998 after opening a new 12-plex
in the same general area.
