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.

The Cinema 8 was built before 2000 and is located at the south end of Cedar City.  The eight-screen theater originally had sloped seating.

In April 2003, Westates Theatres reopened two of the auditoriums with stadium seating and then proceeded to upgrade the remaining theaters in pairs.  The name of the theater complex was later changed from Cinema 8 to Stadium 8.
