After a year of construction UltraStar’s 12-screen cinema opened on November 15, 2012, just in time for the new “Twilight” movie and marathon. The 2,170-seat theater, designed by Nelsen Partners, comes with digital projection and D-Box seating.

According to Management Today magazine: “Each screen will feature two levels of seating – the bottom portion will be open to all ages, while the top portion, dubbed ‘StarClass', will be open to ages 21 and older and feature full bar service as well as in-seat service".

The Multi-tainment center is located on Ak-Chin Indian Community land near Harrah’s Casino Resort and includes 24-lane bowling, restaurants, lounge, arcade and a laser tag arena. It is UltraStar’s fourth location in Arizona. UltraStar Cinemas vacated the building in October 2020 and it was taken over by the Ak-Chin Community Council to be operated by the Ak-0Chin tribe.
