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.
