This is where to post the names of places to boycott because they have anti-gun, anti-freedom stances or policies. Any posts advocating boycotts must explain the reasons for the boycotts including, if possible, documentary proof, such as links to business web sites or news articles.

I don't know if the Clark IMAX Theater is a government entity. If it is a private company leasing city/county property, then it may be able to legally prohibit firearms.

Several years ago, David Nelson had an issue with an organization that had rented Washington Square for an event and prohibited firearms at the event. The City Attorney held that the lessee had the authority to prohibit firearms at that event, even though it was held on city property. It sounds like one of those issues that, at some time, should be adjudicated to determine exactly what a lessee can legally mandate on Utah government property.

Re-Read the passage I quoted in my last post.

The Clark Planetarium is the public part of that Unique Public and Private partnership.

The Clark Planetarium is a government owned and funded entity, paid for with the ZAP taxes. A grant from the Clark foundation helped fund the construction and bought the Name, instead of it remaining the Hansen Planetarium.

This quote

is from the Planetarium's "About Us" page on their website.

It's a county owned and operated facility, LHM Megaplex corp runs the ticket sales for first run movies on the IMAX but it's still a publicly owned facility. And thus pre-empted from having any firearm restrictions by the Uniform Firearms Law.
