Plitt Theaters opened the Crossroads Cinemas on 20 June 1980. It was the first new theater in downtown Salt Lake City since the Centre Theatre in 1937. The triplex was located in the northwest corner of the basement of Crossroads Plaza. The largest auditorium seated 558 and was equipped for 70mm 6-track Dolby Stereo. Loews Cineplex closed the theater on 17 June 2000, after deciding not to renew the lease due to declining ticket sales. The mall was demolished in 2007 to make way for the new City Creek Center development.
Shortly after Lewiston was settled a theatrical group was formed. In 1884 the people of Lewiston built the Lewiston Opera House. It was used for motion pictures, dances, dramatic productions, basketball games, and roller skating before it was destroyed by fire in 1929.
