Deseret News, 01 October 1980, page B13
The first theater six-plex in Utah will be opened by Mann Theaters Thursday and Friday nights at the Plaza Shopping Center, 5400 South Redwood Rd.
Guests at the opening will be actress Rhonda Fleming, native Utahn, and her husband, Ted Mann, who owns and operates movies houses and produces films.
The opening will take place at 7 p.m. Thursday for an invited audience. Public showings will begin Friday. Six new movies are scheduled.
Mr. Mann and Miss Fleming will be making their second visit to Salt Lake in less than a year. Last November, they opened multiple theater units in the Ogden and Provo-Orem areas.
Mann has extensive theater holdings in Utah, Idaho and Montana. He owns nearly 300 showhouses throughout the nation and has the second largest number of theaters owned by a single individual in the United States. He also has been active in theater production. His most recent film was Brubaker, starring Robert Redford.
While in Salt Lake, Mann and Miss Flemming are scheduled to visit with Governor Scott M. Matheson.
