Regal Entertainment Group logoMoviegoers in South Taylorsville, Utah will be able to visit the state's first Regal Cinemas location in 2016 or 2017. The company will be building in the new Crossroads of Taylorsville development at 5400 S. Redwood Road, which will be located just south of the Showstar Cinemas 6.

According to an article published yesterday in the Salt Lake Tribune, demolition has just started, and the plan is for the theater to be open by November 2016:

Demolition got underway Tuesday to clear the way for a planned new retail development on 20 acres just south of 5400 South and west of Redwood Road — an area that has become blighted with vacant and deteriorating buildings.

"It's really the heart of Taylorsville," said city economic development director Wayne Harper. "They'll probably have about 220,000 square feet that will be laid out much better and it will be an entertainment/restaurant-themed development."

:

The project will feature the first Regal theater in Utah, a 12-screen multiplex. It also will be home to a relocated Cafe Rio, an ice-cream parlor and several other restaurants.

Plans call for the theater and several of the eateries to be open by November 2016.

The project is separate from redevelopment across the street on the north side of 5400 So.

That project — that required knocking down the old Furniture Warehouse store — will see a number of restaurants and retailers.

ABC 4 Utah has an article and video of the beginning of demolition. It's somewhat ironic, in a story about a new movie theater coming to the area, that the beginning of the video segment has the reporter standing on the rubble of a former Blockbuster Video store.

We find a total of nine movie theaters within just five miles of the new Regal Cinemas location, including the Megaplex Theatres at Valley Fair Mall, the Redwood Drive-In Theatre, the Cinemark Valley Fair Movies 9, in addition to the aforementioned Showstar Cinemas 6. Time will tell if the area can support that many movie theaters, or if there will be victims of the new development.

Update: The Taylorsville Journal published an article on December 10, 2015 that says that the Regal Cinema will have 14 screens, which is up from the 12 mentioned in the June news reports.
