Megaplex Entertainment Brings Luxury Cinema, Bowling, Arcade, Dining, and Fun to Downtown Daybreak in South Jordan
SOUTH JORDAN, Utah, Oct. 19, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Today, the Larry H. Miller Company announced a major expansion of the Megaplex brand to include the first luxury cinema-entertainment center (CEC) featuring premium format auditoriums, luxury bowling with laneside dining, a variety of food and beverage options, Swig soft drinks and snacks, private event and party space, and more. The first Megaplex Entertainment CEC is coming to Downtown Daybreak in South Jordan, with additional centers in the pipeline.
Utah-based LHM Megaplex is ranked as the 25th largest cinema circuit in North America.
“The state of Utah and Larry H. Miller Megaplex Theatres are leading the nation back to the movies,” said Michelle Smith, president of Larry H. Miller Sports + Entertainment. “We know our guests and families seek quality experiences that include new entertainment options like luxury bowling and arcade, luxury seating, dine-in box seats and elevated food and beverage choices. We are excited to bring this new cinema-entertainment center to Downtown Daybreak, Salt Lake County’s newest regional destination. Our guests will start to see exciting new construction and renovation projects that will create opportunities to enjoy time with friends and family in state-of-the-art facilities.”
The LHM Megaplex Entertainment CEC is located within Downtown Daybreak, a Larry H. Miller Real Estate master-planned community. LHM Megaplex Entertainment plans to offer eight to 10 new screens with dine-in box seats and 100-percent luxury seating; 16 to 20 luxury bowling lanes with laneside dining; dozens of arcade games; and a sports-themed lounge with access to an in-house chef and scratch kitchen; as well as private dining, entertainment, party, and event space. The Megaplex Entertainment CEC will be near the new, privately funded Salt Lake Bees ballpark, where both facilities will serve as sports and entertainment anchors within the transformative and regional urban center. Construction will begin this fall.
Additional Megaplex Entertainment projects are already in development and will be announced soon. Meanwhile, luxury renovations and enhancements are currently underway at the Larry H. Miller Megaplex Theatres at The Junction in Ogden. When complete, that project will feature 100-percent heated, power luxury recliners, luxury box seats, and Quiet Rooms in select auditoriums, a state-of-the-art PlatinumX premium large format laser projection system with Dolby Atmos® sound, Swig beverage and snack offerings, expanded food and beverage selections, and more. The LHM Megaplex Theatres at The Junction remains open during renovations, with select portions of the building closed during remodeling. A similar approach will be used in the coming weeks at the LHM Megaplex Theatres at Geneva in Utah County. Sections of the Geneva location will be temporarily closed while auditoriums are reconfigured to accommodate heated luxury power recliners and other enhancements.
