Information for this tour was contributed by Grant Smith.

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.
