OREM — Need a way around no cable or dish hookups to see BYU and Utah? Provo's Brady Whittingham, younger brother of Utah coach Kyle Whittingham, has purchased a dollar movie theater near Costco and University Mall in Orem and will put the BYU-Tulsa game on the big screen live for free.
"Our plan is to remain a dollar theater, while dedicating two screens to independent films," said Brady Whittingham. "In addition, we will be regularly showing BYU, Utah, Jazz, NFL and other miscellaneous sporting events throughout the year. Admission to television, cable and satellite broadcast events will be free so as to not violate any broadcast/copyright laws."
The theater is located at Festival Cinemas, 959 S. 700 East, Orem.
"This weekend as we celebrate our grand opening, we will be showing the Utah/UCLA game at 3 p.m. and the BYU/Tulsa game at 7 p.m. in the largest of our four theaters. Beginning at noon and continuing through kickoff of the BYU game, our parking lot will be converted to a tailgate lot, with lots of prizes and giveaways from our sponsors. In addition to hundreds of balls, T-shirts, hats, game tickets and other BYU and Utah gear, there will be a raffle for two row six lower bowl tickets to the sold-out Hannah Montana show in the EnergySolutions Arena on Oct. 27."
Concessions will be available both in the cinema lobby and in the tailgate lot.
