The Larry H. Miller Group said Monday it has agreed to lease space for a movie theater complex at Redstone, the Boyer Co.'s commercial development at Kimball Junction near Park City.

The theater complex will include eight screens with a total of 1,000 stadium seats and traditional theater food concessions. It is expected to be the most unusual theater complex in Summit County, said Dennis Haslam, president of Larry H. Miller Sports and Entertainment.

In March, Miller Group agreed to a partnership with Boyer to operate a 12-screen theater complex at the Gateway redevelopment project west of downtown Salt Lake City. That project is scheduled for a November completion.

The Redstone theater would be the first in Summit County to be built consistent with zoning laws that require maintaining the "rural feel" of the community, Haslam said.

"We are confident that this new facility will be an attractive addition to the surrounding area, one that the residents of Summit County will enjoy having in their community," Haslam said.

Construction at the site is expected to get under way in 30 days, with completion of the theater project slated for next spring.

Haslam said initial conversations also have been held with organizers of the Sundance Film Festival to use the theater complex, beginning in 2003, for screenings of the annual event.

The Redstone project is scheduled for completion early next year. Along with the theaters, Redstone will include 180,000 square feet of retail outlets.

The company said leases are being finalized with Bed Bath & Beyond, Ann Taylor Loft, Bath & Body Works, Starbucks, Standard Optical, Ruby's Diner, Baja Fresh Mexican Grill, Country Clutter, Rocky Mountain Eye Works, AT&T and Quizno's Restaurants.

Boyer said it also is working with other retailers expected to sign leases "in the near future."
