CEDAR CITY — A representative of the Larry H. Miller Megaplex Theatres asked the Cedar City Council in its regular meeting Wednesday night to approve an amendment to the city’s parking ordinance to help the company in its remodel plans for Stadium 8 Theatres, 1040 Sage Drive.
The amendment will be effective for any subject to the ordinance; in the case of Megaplex, it will allow a change of parking space ratios for the theater parking lot from 4-to-1 parking to 5-to-1; the amendment will apply
Megaplex Theaters President Blake Anderson, who reside in and operates business out of Salt Lake City, addressed the council regarding the addition. By expanding parking allotments, the ordinance will allow Stadium 8 to be constructed into a “real Megaplex Theater,” he said.
“The beauty of theaters is that we work on the off-hours when most businesses are gone and other businesses are closed,” he said. “In order to add on to the building we needed the parking allowance in the community for the future.”
The remodel, which Anderson said will be under construction immediately, will include three additional screens, a food court and a lobby area with restrooms.
