Centerville may get Megaplex theater

CENTERVILLE (Deseret News) — Night life in Centerville? A few years ago that would have sounded nearly impossible.

But by 2011, this Davis County city could become a destination for film and theater.

U.S. Development, a developer based in Layton, is working with another developer on a plan to bring a 14-screen Megaplex theater, entertainment center and 252 units of residential apartments to Centerville between I-15 and Legacy Parkway.

The development is being planned for 28 acres just south of Parrish Lane and west of I-15.

Combine it with the future opening of the $14 million Davis Cultural Arts Center, a live-performance theater currently under construction, and Centerville has the makings for a night life.

"There's a big demand in the area," said assistant city manager Blaine Lutz.

Currently, the closest first-run movie theaters are located at Salt Lake City's Gateway mall and in Layton. And the city's theatrical entertainment comes from Rodgers Memorial Theatre, which runs shows regularly but will be moving to the Davis Cultural Arts Center when it opens.

The Centerville City Council recently approved a zoning change to allow the development's residential component, said Cory Snyder.
