Residents will have a new option for entertainment this spring when the new Larry H. Miller Megaplex Luxury Theatre opens. Located at 1945 East Murray-Holladay Road, the grand opening will be at noon on March 8.
“One of the first major Hollywood films to premiere at the new Megaplex Luxury Theatres in Holladay will be Disney’s live action version of ‘Beauty and the Beast,’” said Jeff Whipple, vice president of advertising, marketing and public relations at Megaplex Corporate. “As a result, we are inviting Holladay residents to ‘Be Our Guest’ as we celebrate the opening of the new location.”
The new movie theater has been in the works since Megaplex announced its plans in November 2016.
“Residents in Holladay have shown a keen interest in a Megaplex location for some time. Holladay is a vibrant community that continues to show significant growth and a wonderful environment for family-friendly entertainment,” Whipple said. “Utah leads the United States in movie attendance and have repeatedly voted Megaplex Theatres as Utah’s favorite movie theaters.”
The new theater will feature six state-of-the-art digital auditoriums, including a new laser projector system featured in the VIP Auditorium. Other amenities include heated power luxury recliners, big-screen video gaming, reserved seating, high resolution imaging at 48 frame rate, Coca-Cola freestyle beverage system, expanded concessions and premium dessert options, corporate events and banquet space, digital posters, menus and multimedia screens.
According to Whipple, the location where the new Megaplex will be was once the site of another movie theater chain. It has seen undergone a complete top-to-bottom luxury renovation and state-of-the-art technology makeover.
“The construction and design team have gone to great lengths to provide Holladay residents a completely new level of elegance in movie going,” Whipple said. “The new Megaplex Luxury Theatres in Holladay will offer nearby residents the opportunity to see first-run Hollywood films at a neighborhood theater for the first time in several years.”
Whipple said the location’s private banquet area will be ideal for business meetings, company parties, family gatherings and more. Moreover, Whipple said the Megaplex Luxury Theatre team will work to ensure the highest level of guest services to provide residents the ultimate entertainment experience.
Residents are encouraged to watch for updates about the theater on the Megaplex Theatre website, as well as follow them on social media, and @megaplextheatre on Twitter and Instagram.
