Luxury Loungers are electric-powered, plush, oversize recliners with footrests and cup holders. One auditorum features Cinemark XD, Cinemark's own Premium Large Format brand.

Mountain View Village is a 85-acre "premier mixed-use lifestyle center", with a mix of enterainment, retail, restaurant, business, and residential. In addition to the cinema, Phase II includes five pocket parks, a show fountain, and a covered market pavilion with eateries and both indoor and outdoor seating.
“We are thrilled to be expanding the immersive, cinematic experience of seeing a film on the big screen with the addition of a brand-new Cinemark theatre in Riverton,” said Jay Jostrand, Cinemark EVP of Real Estate. “We know Utah has an avid moviegoing community, and we are proud to work with long-time partner CenterCal Properties to bring this new entertainment destination to life with our best amenities and the sight and sound technology that cannot be replicated at home.”
“We are honored and thrilled to once again partner with Cinemark Theatres, this time for Mountain View Village, Phase II,” said Craig Trottier, CenterCal Properties LLC President, Intermountain Region. “The groundbreaking of this new Cinemark location represents one of the first new theatres to begin construction since the COVID pandemic began and is a testament to Cinemark’s strength and commitment to its customers. This theatre will set a new standard for entertainment in the Intermountain West. We can’t wait for their grand opening next year.”
Cinemark Riverton is located halfway between Bangerter Highway and the newer Mountain View Corridor, at a point where the two major highways are a mile apart. The theater's closest competitor is the Megaplex Theatres at the District, three miles to the northeast.
The first seven auditoriums of Cinemark Riverton and XD opened 30 June 2022, showing Minions: The Rise of Gru, Top Gun Maverick, Elvis, Jurrasic World Dominion, and Lightyear.
