Roosevelt Twin Theatre
Roosevelt, Utah

George H. Harrison and R. Howard Harrison opened the $40,000 Roosevelt Theatre on Valentine's Day, 14 February 1942, with Shirley Temple in Kathleen.  The “modern up-to-the minute motion picture theatre” was described as “new, beautiful, and elaborately equipped.”  The interior color scheme was peach, green, and beige, with red velour curtains and drapes.  The 500 seats in the auditorium were “arranged on a slight arc so that every seat directly faces the screen.”  The stage was large and had floodlights, so the theater could “accommodate many types of entertainment” and serve as “a community playhouse as well as a motion picture theatre.”

Movies 7 opened as a first-run movie theater, sometime before December 1988.  The multiplex is located in the Sandy Mall, near the Olympus Starship discount theater.  Movies 7 featured advanced ticket sales and the first THX certified auditorium in Salt Lake County.

By August 1991, two additional auditoriums were added and the theater's name changed to Movies 9. 

Movies 9 became a discount theater on 25 February 2000, a few months after the opening of the nearby Megaplex 17 at Jordan Commons.[1]

By mid-December 2012, all screens at Movies 9 had been upgraded to digital projection.[2]
