New triplex opens in Nephi
NEPHI, UT — There hasn’t been an operating movie theater in this town about 75 miles south of Salt Lake City since the Venice Theater closed in 1983. The new Salt Creek Cinemas opened last month.
Ground was broken for the new theater in February of 2009. At the time, owners were worried about starting a new business in such a bad economy, especially an expensive business like a movie theater.
Steve Robison, another of the owners of Salt Creek Cinemas, said movie theaters typically do well in tough times. But he was still a little nervous.
Now, after being open for about five weeks, Robison said they’re breaking about even. He thinks “New Moon” will put them over the top for a while.
