Valley Fair Movies 9
West Valley City, Utah

Robert H. Lippert, who owned a chain of theaters based in San Francisco, opened the Valley Fair 4 on 14 August 1970.   The theater was the first four-screen multiplex in the Salt Lake Valley.   An addition opened in 1986, increasing the number of screens to nine.   The Valley Fair Movies 9 was the first multiple-screen dollar theater and also boasted stereo sound in all auditorium, a luxury lacking in most first-run theater at the time.

Herald Journal, 03 March 2004

Article Summary:
"The Passion of the Christ" set records at the Logan Art Cinema during its opening weekend, selling out one showing on Wednesday, two on Friday, three on Saturday, and two on Sunday.

"This never happens here. Busy for us is like 25 people . . ." said Shelly Burton, manager of the theater.   "Usually, you come to see a show and get your own private screening."

An all-time one-day income record of $5,000 was set by the three sold-out shows on Saturday.
