Cinemark at Crossroads Plaza
Salt Lake City, Utah

Cinemark USA announced plans in 1999 to build a new 15-screen multiplex at Crossroads Plaza.   The 3,000-seat theater would have included Utah's first IMAX screen.   Construction was to begin in spring, with a Christmas 2000 opening.   Plans stalled and the cinema was never built.   Demolition of Crossroads Plaza began in 2007 and the mall was replaced by City Creek Center.

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.
