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.
The Geneva Drive-In was owned by Veigh Cummings and had a capacity of 624 cars. The theater closed about 1966 and was demolished before 1970. The drive-in was located on the southwest corner of 1300 South State Street, across from where the University Mall now stands.
