Fats Grill fills its space with all the ingredients of a good time, including a menu populated with burgers, pizza, and sandwiches, a fully stocked bar, 12 flat-screen TVs, and seven pool tables, a setup that has won the hangout City Weekly's Best Pool Joint 13 years in a row. Twelve is the number of its burgers, all served on toasted sheepherder rolls with toppings such as bacon, jalapeños, and pastrami. Toasted sourdough builds the foundation for the grill's sandwiches, and pizza crust keeps italian sausage, red onion, and pineapple chunks from gracing the floor with their presence. Fats Grill also houses a newly renovated basement concert venue, a place where local musicians take the stage every Friday and Saturday night to belt out the name game using every audience member's name.
Brewvies fuses together two beloved pastimes into one activity that will one day be a pastime. With more than 19 beers on tap, and a full menu of eats, Brewvies offers an entertainment outlet for anyone who can't make it through a film without adequate sustenance. Brewvies shows new releases, such as Iron Man 2 and Date Night, on state-of-the-art movie screens. During the show, sip on a large popcorn and eat two soda beverages. After the film, prolong a date or casual-friend interaction by debating imagined alternative endings to imaginary films starring Emmitt Smith and Glenn Close over a beer, during a game of pool, or while reclining in comfy, cup-ready chairs.
Celebrating its 10th year, the Salt Lake Film Society cultivates a rich community for the production and exhibition of independent cinema by organizing lectures, workshops, and regular screenings at two historic theaters. Owned and operated by the society, both the Tower Theatre and Broadway Centre Cinemas screen full schedules of accessible talkies and arty ask-again-laters ranging from Errol Morris's epic documentaries to quixotic first features from indie darling Richard Ayoade. A savvy staff helps visitors sort through a trove of several thousand handpicked DVDs and VHS videos at the society-owned Tower Video––a library for all things cinematic that is open to both members and any member of the general public who can recite the entire opening speech to Patton.
