Holladay, UT: Megaplex Theatres - Cottonwood Opens in Former Water Gardens Holladay 6 Location

Posted on Friday, March 31st, 2017 4:46 PM

Megaplex Theatres logoThe six-screen Megaplex Theatres - Cottonwood in Holladay, Utah opened earlier this month in the space that was the Water Gardens Holladay 6 until it closed in October 2016.

The official ribbon-cutting for the theater was held on March 8, 2017 and moviegoers were able to proceed in and see what they did with the place. According to an article published in the Salt Lake City Tribune, the company made some changes to the theater, including heated reclining seats:

"We did everything we could to restore what was great and bring in a few finishing touches," [company president Blake Andersen] said.

The theater is the first building to bear the company's Megaplex Luxury brand. Other Megaplex theaters, like the flagship at Sandy's Jordan Commons, have luxury seating in some auditoriums, but Holladay is the first to make every seat in every theater a heated luxury recliner.

The six theaters seat 486 patrons — far fewer than the 1,100 or so seats in the old movie houses.

Megaplex has also added a downstairs lounge and a cafe menu that includes crepes, salads, waffles and other items along with the traditional popcorn and candy. One of the six theaters has been turned into a VIP auditorium, with concierge service and laser projection.

  • Premiere Movie Parties and Special Corporate Events

Almost three years ago, the future of a Megaplex Theatres location for the area was very different. In August 2014, the company announced that it would be building a new 10-screen movie theater as part of the new 54-acre Cottonwood development that was happening on the south side of Murray Holladay Road. The development was to replace the Cottonwood Mall, which was the location of the Carmike Cottonwood 4 until the theater closed in 2002. That development never got started, and the only remaining building housed Macy's which announced it was closing earlier this year.

The two closest movie theaters to the Cottonwood's location are the Century 16 Sandy Union Heights to the south, the Century 16 Salt Lake to the northwest, and the Cinemark Sugar House. All are about four miles away.
