Zion Canyon Giant Screen Theatre winterFor the first time in five years, the Zion Canyon Giant Screen Theatre will be staying open through the winter months. In previous years, the movie theater boasting the largest screen in Utah and one of the largest in the world—measuring 60 feet high and 82 feet across—has closed during the months of January and February, reopening in March.

While the Zion Canyon Giant Screen Theatre is perhaps best known for the documentary “Zion Canyon, Treasure of the Gods,” the film for which the theater was built in 1994, this year moviegoers will be able to catch some of Hollywood’s biggest releases. On Nov. 20, “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2” opened and will run until Dec. 18, when “Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens” hits the Zion big screen.

In January, “Zion Canyon, Treasure of the Gods” will return with select showings, and on President’s Day weekend, the theater will feature the premier of “National Parks Adventure.”

Movie Review: ‘Creed’ goes the distance!

MOVIE REVIEW: “CREED” (PG-13) This article has nothing to do with the ’90s rock band, but it should be noted that audiences would be well advised to welcome the rousing new “Rocky” spinoff, “Creed,” with arms wide open, because it’s a total knockout!

Movie Review: ‘The Night Before’ is an uneven mixture of naughty and nice

MOVIE REVIEW: “THE NIGHT BEFORE” (R) Good intentions aside, “Love the Coopers” came up way short of Christmas classic status. For those hoping “The Night Before” would rise to the challenge and emerge as a new cinematic Christmas tradition for years to come, not to crush your hopes and dreams, but you’re bound to be disappointed.

Movie Review: ‘Love the Coopers’ should be retitled ‘A Christmess Story’

MOVIE REVIEW: “LOVE THE COOPERS” (PG-13) Love the Coopers? It’s hard to “love” them when I barely like them. And having likable characters is pretty essential in a Christmas movie, unless you’re “Bad Santa” or “The Ref.”
