Open houses draw 92,000; film will continue to be shown daily

Some 92,000 people visited the Joseph Smith Memorial Building in Salt Lake City during several days of open houses in connection with the dedication of the former Hotel Utah on June 27.

A popular feature of the open houses was the showing of a new 70-millimeter Church film, "Legacy," which continues to be shown eight times daily."Legacy," a 53-minute film depicting the early history of the Church through the experiences of a fictional pioneer family, is being shown Mondays through Saturdays in a new 500-seat, large-screen theater. Beginning July 19, show times are 9 a.m., 10:30 a.m., noon, 1:30 p.m., 4 p.m., 5:30 p.m., 7 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. (See June 19 and June 26 Church News for articles on the film and theater.)

There is no charge for the movie, but tickets are required to ensure that no more than 500 people are admitted for each showing. Tickets may be obtained at the Joseph Smith Memorial Building, at the visitors centers on Temple Square or at the Church Office Building.

Other public facilities in the Joseph Smith Memorial Building include the FamilySearch Center, where patrons may do basic family history research at more than 130 computer stations; The Roof Restaurant; The Garden Restaurant; and several banquet-meeting rooms. Also included are meeting rooms and a chapel for a downtown stake and two wards and a branch. In addition, several floors house offices for Church departments. (See June 26 and July 3 Church News for articles on the facilities and dedication of the building.)
