Sugarhouse Movies 10
Salt Lake City, Utah

Cinemark USA opened Movies 10 on 27 March 1992 as part of the new Sugar House Shopping Center. The 10-screen theater was Cinemark's second discount theater in the Salt Lake area and was intended to fill the niche between first-run movies and home video. The largest auditorium was the fourth THX-certified screen in Utah. The theater closed 2 November 2014 for remodeling with Luxury Loungers, electric-powered recliners with cup holders and footrests.

Hi-volume theaters

By Pat Bohm Trostle
Herald Journal, 26 October 1999

Article Summary:

Utah State University instructor Ken Curtis took his class of graduate audiology students to the Cinefour Theatres and Movies 5 to measure sound levels experienced members of the audience sitting near the middle of the auditorium.

During a tour of the projection booth, Cinefour assistant manager Julie Ewing said that the Cinefour wasn't designed for the extra insulation required for THX certification.  She also explained the differences between Dolby Stereo, Dolby Digital, and DTS, but the article doesn't mention if the Cinefour was equipped for any of those formats.  The theater does have radio receiver headphones with volume controls to assist the hearing impaired.
