Information for this tour was contributed by Grant Smith.

The Cinemark Tinseltown USA at the Layton Hills Mall opened in May 1997 with 7 screens and about 1600 seats. Features included "highback rocker seats, four-day advance ticket sales, digital sound, a video arcade room, four large concession areas and six box office stations." The largest auditoriums seat 425, the medium size 260, and the smallest 135. (1)

Plans for the Tinseltown USA changed at least twice.

In August 1992, Cinemark announced that it would expand the Movies 10 theater at Layton Hills Mall to 14 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. (2)

The planned expansion, however, never took place. Instead, Cinemark announced in December 1994 that it would demolish its Movies 6 theater in order to build a 16-screen theater. About the same time, Cineplex Oden announced it would built a 10-screen theater near the site, giving the area a total of 36 first-run movie theaters. (3)

Cinemark's planned 16-screen theater became the 7-screen Tinseltown and the new Cineplex Odeon theater had 9 screens instead of 10. With a total of 16 new stadium-seating theaters in the area, Movies 10 eventually changed to a discount theater.

Movies 10 has since been connected to the Tinseltown building and had its marquee removed. Both buildings are now operated as a single complex.
