Pantages Utah Theater demolition – In pictures

We took these photos this afternoon. Tomorrow looks like it will be all over for the physical structure of Pantages Utah Theater.

It will be replaced by a 31-story residential tower by Hines Development, who purchased the property from the city’s Redevelopment Agency.

Today, the crew worked on the historic Kearns Building parking garage, the steel-and-brick building to the north of the theater.
