Cinemark at Crossroads Plaza
Salt Lake City, Utah

Cinemark USA announced plans in 1999 to build a new 15-screen multiplex at Crossroads Plaza.   The 3,000-seat theater would have included Utah's first IMAX screen.   Construction was to begin in spring, with a Christmas 2000 opening.   Plans stalled and the cinema was never built.   Demolition of Crossroads Plaza began in 2007 and the mall was replaced by City Creek Center.

Proscenium
Sandy, Utah

Scott McQuarrie, a Utah County developer, approached Sandy City in 2006 about building a 2,400-seat Broadway theater southwest of City Hall.  The development was named “The Proscenium”, after the Greek innovation to better frame theater performances.  The announcement created a rivalry between Sandy and Salt Lake City, which had also had plans for a Broadway theater.  Funding for the Proscenium dried up after the credit market tumbled in late 2008.
