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