Cinemark at Provo Towne Center
Provo, Utah

The Cinemark 16 opened on 12 November 1999 and was the second theater complex built by Cinemark USA in Utah County.  The theater is part of the Provo Towne Center Mall and features stadium seating and digital sound in all auditoriums.

"We would like to bring a family experience to Provo, making [the Cinemark at Provo Towne Center] the ideal place for families to spend time together" said Randall Hester, vice-president of Cinemark USA.  "With so many movie choices, there is something for every member of the family."

Cineplex Odeon opened the Holladay Center Cinemas on  3 June 1988, proclaiming it to be "the return of the elegant theatre."   The six-screen multiplex featured "state-of-the-art wide screened cinemas" with "luxurious plush seating", "elegantly-designed contemporary interiors with marble floors", an original painting by artist Paul Sloggett, same-day advance ticket sales, and real butter on the popcorn.  All auditoriums were equipped for Dolby Stereo and at one was equipped for 70mm presentations.1

After 14 years, the theater closed in March 2001 as part of the Loews Cineplex bankruptcy reorganization.

On 20 April 2001, Westates Theaters re-opened the Holladay Center after spending "several thousand dollars to refurbish several hundred of the seats in the Holladay Center's six auditoriums, install new computer software for ticketing and concessions and spruce up the sound in the auditoriums."  "We think we've got the best theater in the area," said Tony Rudman Jr., vice president and corporate counsel for Westates.  "This is a premium facility, and it's the perfect location. This theater fills a need for the area."2
