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.

Megaplex Theatres will open a new 15-screen theater at Valley Fair Mall by November 2012. Construction will begin after the holidays with the demolition of the vacant Mervyn's department store building. The 112,000-square-foot theater complex will feature 2,700 seats with reserved stadium seating, digital projection, D-BOX motions seats, an IMAX theater, a full-service food court, and a “Director’s Suite” reception hall. The theater is part of a $40-million remodeling project that will expand Valley Fair Mall to 120 tenants and more than a million square feet.
