Age 1

Being listed on the National Register of Historic Places, The Salt Lake City Union Pacific Depot dates to the more prosperous era in the history of American railroad travel. Originally called the Union Station, it was jointly constructed by the San Pedro, Los Angeles and Salt Lake Railroads and the Oregon Short Line. The platforms behind the station ran north-to-south, parallel to the first main line built in the Salt Lake Valley. When Amtrak was formed in 1971, it took over the passenger services at the station, but all trains were moved to the Rio Grande station after it joined Amtrak. In January 2006, The Depot was opened as a shopping center that housed shops, restaurants and music venues.
1928 · The Tower Theater

Age 21

The Tower Theatre is a historic film theater operated by the Salt Lake Film Society. The theater presents independent films and is a venue for the Sundance Film Festival. It also presents classic films on occasional weekends and hosts a movie-rental library for those that want to expand their cinematic knowledge.
