Layton Hills Cinemas
Layton, Utah

 Cineplex Odeon opened the Layton Hills Cinemas on 14 November 1997.   The multiplex theater featured "sightline seating," curved screens, and digital sound in all nine auditoriums.  The largest auditorium had 444 seats and an elevator to reach the top of the stadium seating section.   AMC Theatres renovated the Layton Hills 9 in 2013, reducing seating capacity in each auditorium by 50 to 70 percent to install power recliners.

Bringing Down the House

Emery County Progress, 22 April 2003

Article Summary:
When the city of Huntington demolished two abandoned buildings in April 2003, the Star Theatre next door was ironically playing the movie "Bringing Down the House."  The city condemned the buildings, known as the Gibb property, because they were a safety hazard and major eyesore on Huntington's Main Street.  The city will put the property up for bid so it can recoup the costs of asbestos removal and demolition.

Percy Mounteer, who owns the Star Theatre, wants to buy the property and use the front half of the lot as parking for the theater.  This would resolve a safety issue with patrons who park across the street and then jaywalk across to the theater.  Not long ago three children were almost hit as they crossed the street.
