Tower Theatre

Tower Theatre is equal parts charm and history. As the oldest operating theater in Salt Lake, it's seen changes in facade, ownership and equipment since it's 1921 inception. In 2001, the theatre was resurrected by the brother/sister team of Paul and Kris Liacopoulos, co-founders of the Salt Lake Film Society [which also includes the very choice Broadway Centre Cinema].

Tower's historic appeal and nostalgic qualities are sufficiently alluring, but they offer a plethora of independent films you won't find at other venues. Get your cultured experience here, folks. Tower is home to various film festivals, classic screenings [Hitchcock, anyone?], and "Sing with Maria"...a screening of The Sound of Music where attendees are encouraged to dress-up and sing-a-long. Top-drawer fun.

Prefer the comfort of movies on your davenport? They've got an impressive,eclectic and pretty obscure selection of video rentals in the lobby. Rent your film, get hot drinks at Coffee Garden next door, and get back to your couch, post-haste. Tower is the perfect venue, for both your nights out and your nights in.

Bonus: Tower is currently running a doozie of a membership drive...ideal gifts for your cinema-loving friends and family. Scroll down or click here for details.
