The Other Gateway, 2010

When the Gateway Mall opened in late 2001, its brand-new twelve screen Megaplex theater made our little multiplex in Bountiful that much more irrelevant. It opened back in the early '90s, during that unfortunate window between when builders started making multiplexes and when they decided things like stadium seating and surround seating were essential. I remember taking dates to the theater, and seeing movies like "Sleepless in Seattle," but a real movie experience was pretty rare. The theater shut down for several years, through the time I wandered over to take this shot, but eventually the place was remodeled and reopened. I'd hoped for a convenient dollar theater, but instead the Gateway 8 still offers first-run movies, but at a slightly discounted price.
