Tu Cine originally opened as the Plaza Theater and was one of, if not the only, purpose-built 3-strip Cinerama theater erected in Utah. (The Villa theater was retrofited about 12 years after it opened.)
Construction on the Plaza began one month before ‘It’s A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World’ opened at the Villa and three-strip Cinerama disappeared from the Salt Lake Valley.
The theater was split several years later and renamed the Valley Twin. It was split again later on into a five-plex and renamed the Cinemas 5.
It remained a discount movie house until Consolidated Theaters finally closed it when new 24 and 15-screen megaplexes were built nearby.
The Cinemas 5 was then used as a venue for live entertainment before being reopened as a movie theater on May 16, 2002 serving the latino community called Tu Cine.
Ticket prices for Tu Cine were below what other area "mainstream" theaters charged at $5 for adults and $3 for children. The theater re-opened with spanish-language versions of "Star-Wars: Episode Two", "Spider-Man", and "The Scorpion King".
The Tu Cine closed in the Fall of 2007.
