•Megaplex at Thanksgiving Point

Crossroads Cinemas
Salt Lake City, Utah

Plitt Theaters opened the Crossroads Cinemas on 20 June 1980.   It was the first new theater in downtown Salt Lake City since the Centre Theatre in 1937.  The triplex was located in the northwest corner of the basement of Crossroads Plaza.  The largest auditorium seated 558 and was equipped for 70mm 6-track Dolby Stereo.   Loews Cineplex closed the theater on 17 June 2000, after deciding not to renew the lease due to declining ticket sales.   The mall was demolished in 2007 to make way for the new City Creek Center development.

Thanksgiving Point opens new theater

By PAUL CATALA
Daily Herald, 29 May 2003

Article Summary:
The new Thanksgiving Point Stadium 8 Theatres will open four of its eight screens Friday at noon. The theater was originally scheduled to open May 23, but was delayed a week because of problems getting the seats shipped and installed. All eight theaters should be open by next Friday.

The Stadium 8 is Westates Theaters' second theater in Utah County. The first was Water Gardends Cinema 6 in Pleasant Grove, which opened in November 1997.

The $3.5 million theater complex has 28,000 square feet and is equipped with “the most modern equipment in projection and sound technology.” Auditoriums seat between 200 and 300 patrons and feature stadium seating. The theater's mirror projectors have infinite focal points, making the screens' brightness and clarity equally dispersed. All theaters have digital sound, with Dolby sound systems in two of them.

Opening day features were "Finding Nemo", "Holes", and "Italian Job".
