Megaplex Theatres will be building a new 10-screen movie theater in the Cottonwood development in Salt Lake City, Utah, according to a press release issued the company and the Howard Hughes Corporation, the company behind the 57-acre development that is located eight miles from the downtown area. The new theater will be located beneath the clock tower in the development.

“We are pleased to welcome Utah’s top cinematic experience to the Cottonwood development,” said Grant Herlitz, President of The Howard Hughes Corporation. “The Megaplex will be part of a dynamic lineup of retail, dining and entertainment that will be an exceptional part of the Cottonwood transformation, serving the entire Salt Lake City market.”

Guests to the new theater will be able to enjoy reserved stadium seating, parties and special events, and a full-service dining hall where they can take their food with them to watch the movie. Megaplex is expecting that the theater will create nearly 100 full-time and part-time jobs. Megaplex Theatres currently owns/operates 16 locations in Utah, and one in Nevada.

The Cottonwood development appears to be the site of the former Cottonwood Mall on the southeast corner of Highland Drive and E. Murray Holladay Road in Holladay. The mall was the site of the Carmike Cottonwood 4 until it closed in 2002, and the Carmike Creekside Theatres was located across Highland Drive until it closed in 2000. The closest theater in operation is the Water Gardens Holladay 6, which is located just across Murray Holiday Road.

The press release did not mention a time frame for the theater to be operational.

This development was never built, and Megaplex Theatres has taken over the closed 6-screen theater (Water Gardens Holladay 6) across the street.
