Since 1985, the Children's Theatre had never obtained a long term lease or owned a building. After searching for a permanent home for over three years, the Children's Theatre announced in June 2011 the purchase of the Avalon Theatre in South Salt Lake. The theater's new home will feature a 185-seat auditorium with carpeted aisles, stadium seating, a thrust stage, and 17-foot high ceilings.

The Geneva Drive-In was owned by Veigh Cummings and had a capacity of 624 cars. The theater closed about 1966 and was demolished before 1970. The drive-in was located on the southwest corner of 1300 South State Street, across from where the University Mall now stands.
