Utah Theatre
Salt Lake City, Utah

In April 1968, Intermountain Theatres announced plans to divide the Utah Theatre into the state's first two-screen theater complex.  The original auditorium, which seated 1765, was divided by adding a floor from the balcony to the proscenium arch.  The new upper-level theater was known as the Penthouse and included the rows of balcony seating and the original, ornate ceiling.

Robert H. Lippert, who owned a chain of theaters based in San Francisco, opened the Valley Fair 4 on 14 August 1970.   The theater was the first four-screen multiplex in the Salt Lake Valley.   An addition opened in 1986, increasing the number of screens to nine.   The Valley Fair Movies 9 was the first multiple-screen dollar theater and also boasted stereo sound in all auditorium, a luxury lacking in most first-run theater at the time.
