Construction is scheduled to begin on February 17, 2021, for a major luxury renovation of the Larry H. Miller Megaplex Theatres location at The Gateway in downtown Salt Lake City. The project is a joint venture between the Larry H. Miller Group of Companies and Vestar Development, owners of The Gateway.
The renovation will temporarily close the downtown Megaplex Theatres complex for the next few months. During construction, movie fans will be able to visit nearby Megaplex Theatres locations in Centerville or West Valley City, each less than 15 minutes from downtown Salt Lake City.
“The project has been on the drawing board for some time and we’re looking forward to offering our downtown Salt Lake guests an enhanced luxury experience,” said Blake Andersen, Megaplex Theatres president. “Our plan is to have the new Megaplex Luxury Theatres at The Gateway fully operational in time for the biggest Hollywood releases coming in the early summer.”
The new Megaplex Luxury Theatres complex will feature heated luxury recliners, in-seat dining, premium snack and beverage service, elegant décor, private meeting and event space, state-of-the-art technology and much more.
“As an anchor tenant and valued partner, we are excited to see Megaplex Theatres deliver the latest trend in the movie-going experience to The Gateway,” says Jenny Cushing, VP of Leasing for Vestar. “As a downtown destination for premier art and entertainment offerings, we know the community will appreciate an elevated, more luxurious theatre experience.”
The new Megaplex Luxury Theatres at The Gateway will occupy the same general area as the original Megaplex location that dates back to 2001.
