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.

On 16 January 2004, Rocky Mountain Cinemas opened the new eight-screen Redstone 8 Cinemas at Kimball Junction near Park City. The 1,000-seat multiplex is the largest in the Wasatch Back and features stadium seating, love seats, a lobby cafe, cry room and play area, and a video arcade.1

The new Redstone development by The Boyer Co. is expected to have more than 45 stores and restaurants, 30,000 square feet of office space, and 286 residential units.2

Rocky Mountain Cinemas was not the first theater chain to be involved with the proposed the Redstone theater. About July 2001 Megaplex Theatres announced plans to open the theater in the spring 2002.3
