The George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Theater, opening in October on Main Street in Salt Lake City, is running about six months behind schedule and about $7 million over budget.
The good news, according to Councilwoman Lisa Adams, chairwoman of the Redevelopment Agency Board, is that the additional expenditures will be covered by private donations.
The 2,500-seat theater, originally scheduled to debut this spring, is now slated for a late October grand opening.
In early 2014, the mega-theater, capable of hosting traveling Broadway shows, was estimated to cost $116 million. That number was upped to $119 million by the time construction began in June 2014.
