TLA Releasing's gay-themed love story Latter Days, about a Mormon who falls in love with a West Hollywood circuit boy, will finally have a theatrical run in Salt Lake City, beginning March 26. The Salt Lake Film Society will open the film at either the Broadway Centre Cinemas or the Tower Theatre. Latter Days was originally set to open in Salt Lake City on January 30, concurrent with the New York and Los Angeles opening days, but Madstone Theatres dumped the engagement at the last minute, citing concerns with the film's "artistic quality." "We are thrilled that Latter Days will have an opportunity to tell its story to Salt Lake City audiences," said TLA Releasing president Raymond Murray in a statement. "People, regardless of their orientation, have been supporting the film in other cities, as displayed in the amazing box office numbers for the film and the audience feedback. It's only natural that Latter Days plays in Salt Lake City."
