Eccles Theater

Eccles Theater takes Center Stage

eccles theater delta performance hall which seats 2,486, was designed with three tiers above the orchestra level, and features copper and rust-colored furnishings to invoke Utah’s striated sandstone. Most visually striking is the hall’s star field, which served as a creative way to dress the ceiling. Every surface in the hall was part of the acoustic design, aiming to mitigate the noise of downtown.

Regent Street and three other streets are receiving a $12.8 million facelift to become what officials are calling “a cultural byway.” The pedestrian-friendly walkways will feature shops, restaurants and a public plaza, now called the McCarthey Plaza. That’s a nod to Regent Street’s history as home to the city’s newspaper presses.
