We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

Off to See the Wizard



Last month, The Wizard of Oz celebrated the 70th anniversary of its theatrical release. It's not too late to join the birthday party. ---

Fathom Events -- the nationwide program that turns movie theaters into viewing arenas for sports, lectures and a variety of other special screenings -- is presenting a special opportunity to see The Wizard of Oz on the big screen. At 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 23, Utah Cinemark Theaters locations -- including the Century 16 theaters in South Salt Lake and Midvale, and the Jordan Landing theater -- Oz will screen in digitally remastered high definition. The movie palaces of the 1930s may be long gone, but here's your chance to get as close to that original experience as you can.
