Megaplex Theatres will open a new 15-screen theater at Valley Fair Mall by November 2012. Construction will begin after the holidays with the demolition of the vacant Mervyn's department store building. The 112,000-square-foot theater complex will feature 2,700 seats with reserved stadium seating, digital projection, D-BOX motions seats, an IMAX theater, a full-service food court, and a “Director’s Suite” reception hall. The theater is part of a $40-million remodeling project that will expand Valley Fair Mall to 120 tenants and more than a million square feet.
Shortly after Lewiston was settled a theatrical group was formed. In 1884 the people of Lewiston built the Lewiston Opera House. It was used for motion pictures, dances, dramatic productions, basketball games, and roller skating before it was destroyed by fire in 1929.
