The Cinemark Tinseltown USA at the Layton Hills Mall opened in May 1997 with seven screens and about 1600 seats. Features included highback rocker seats, four-day advance ticket sales, digital sound, a video aracade room, four large concession areas and six box office stations. The largest auditorium seats 425, the medium six 260 and the smallest 135.

Plans for the Tinseltown USA changed at least twice. In August 1992, Cinemark announced that it would expand Movies 10 theater at the Layton Hills Mall to fourteen screens by spring 1993. Groundbreaking on the expansion was to begin within 60 days and was to include 13,300 square feet and four 200 seat theaters.

The planned expansion, however, never took place. Instead, Cinemark announced in December 1994 that it would demolish its Movies 6 in order to build a 16 screen theater. About the same time, Cineplex Odeon announced it would build a ten-screen theater near the site, giving the area a total of 36 first run movie theaters.

Cinemark’s planned 16-screen theater became the seven screen Tinseltown and the new Cineplex Odeon theater had nine screens instead of ten. With a total of sixteen new stadium seating theaters in the area, Movies 10 eventually changed to a discount theater.

Some updating of this theater is needed and I will leave it to the CT editors as to how to handle the fact that another theater listed here on CT has apparently been merged into this one.

According to the notes at the bottom of this webpage, the Movies 10 was annexed into the Tinseltown USA Layton Cinemas. However, as noted above, Tinseltown is listed as having only seven screens. However, a glance at the Tinseltown’s page at the official Cinemark website shows that theater has at least fifteen screens, so it does appear that the Movies 10 was merged into the Tinseltown.

The screen count and the headnote need to be adjusted.
