Performing Arts Center
Salt Lake City has always been a center of the arts in the Intermountain West. A new theater located in the heart of downtown will accommodate professional touring shows and musical and family shows not currently able to schedule in this market. Integrating a large, new theater into downtown's performing arts repertoire will increase the excitement of the public for the arts, become a catalyst for growth and redevelopment downtown, and bring people downtown to enjoy the full array of cultural offerings.
The Majestic Theater in San Antonio, Buell Theater in Denver, Milwaukee Theater, Heinz Hall in Pittsburgh and many others have served as artistic and economic catalysts for those communities. There is no reason the same will not prove true in downtown Salt Lake City.
