SANDY, Utah, March 18, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- With an abundance of caution and in the best interest of our guests and team members, we are temporarily suspending regular business operations of all Larry H. Miller Megaplex Theatres locations effective immediately.
While there have been no confirmed cases of COVID-19 at Larry H. Miller Megaplex Theatres to date, after carefully reviewing the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and other health safety experts, we are proceeding with the temporary closure of all Megaplex Theatres locations in Utah and Nevada, effective immediately and continuing until further notice.
Other businesses located within Megaplex Theatres complexes, including Bon Bon Desserts, Cold Stone Creamery, Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, ZAGG, or other business partners may also temporarily close.
