Megaplex at Valley Fair Mall
West Valley City, Utah

Megaplex Theatres will open a new 15-screen theater at Valley Fair Mall by November 2012.  Construction will begin after the holidays with the demolition of the vacant Mervyn's department store building.  The 112,000-square-foot theater complex will feature 2,700 seats with reserved stadium seating, digital projection, D-BOX motions seats, an IMAX theater, a full-service food court, and a “Director’s Suite” reception hall.   The theater is part of a $40-million remodeling project that will expand Valley Fair Mall to 120 tenants and more than a million square feet.

The Olympus Starships twin theater was located in the Olympus Hills Mall and featured Dolby Stereo in the left auditorium.  The projection rooms were visible from the lobby and the auditoriums were designed to look like the inside of a space ship.

On 11 September 1992 one of the Olympus Starship's two screens was devoted to showing art films, working with together with the Tower theater.1

The theater closed about 2000 and the area was leveled and converted to retail.
