Robert H. Lippert, who owned a chain of theaters based in San Francisco, opened the Valley Fair 4 on 14 August 1970. The theater was the first four-screen multiplex in the Salt Lake Valley. An addition opened in 1986, increasing the number of screens to nine. The Valley Fair Movies 9 was the first multiple-screen dollar theater and also boasted stereo sound in all auditorium, a luxury lacking in most first-run theater at the time.
The Martin Dalton Social Hall was built in the middle of Circleville on property donated to the Circleville Amusement Company by Taylor Whittaker in 1907. After the building was damaged by fire in November 1918, events were held in the town's church until a new high school with an auditorium was built in 1921.1
