Cinemas 5
Vernal, Utah

When Warren Mott and his sons opened the Twin Cinema on 23 November 1973, it was the largest theater complex between Denver and Salt Lake City.  The lobby featured a huge crystal chandelier with 54 lights suspended over a round concession and ticket counter.  The 500 and 300-seat auditoriums were equipped with carpeting, drapes, “stadium type upholstered seats,” stereophonic speakers, and 21 by 40 feet Cinemascope screens.  The adjoining El Diamante reception center was converted to a third auditorium after Kent Limb purchased the theater in 1982.

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]
