Westates Theatres opened the Sunset Corner Stadium 8 Theatres on 15 June 2001.  The eight-screen multiplex features stadium seating and digital sound in all auditoriums.  All three film digital sound systems are installed in the cinema: DTS, Dolby Digital, and SDDS.  In addition to the main concession stand, there is an additional snack bar outside theaters Five and Six. Opening day movies included Atlantis and Tomb Raider.[1]

“The place was packed,” observed a moviegoer who attended the opening night, although he goes on to exaggerate. “The concession lines were a mile long.  Perhaps even a mile and a half long . . .”

Another person commented, “The facility is nice, and the price was still reasonable.”

The Sunset Corner Stadium 8 was the first stadium seating theater in Southern Utah.  Its popularity prompted Westates to add stadium seating to the St. George Cinema 6 and the Cedar City Cinema 8 and to build the Pineview Stadium 10.

The Sunset Corner Stadium 8 is part of a new development
owned by the Gardner and Jennings families on the corner of Sunset Boulevard and Bluff Street.  Westates Theatres, a family-owned business that started with one screen in 1958, leases the building.[1]
