Utahns do love them some "Les Mis."

The movie version of the hit musical "Les Misérables" is likely to produce a Christmas that's "off the charts" at the Utah-based Megaplex Theatres chain, according to company officials.

"This is shaping up to be one of the busiest Christmas days we've had at the theaters in years," said Blake Andersen, senior vice president for Megaplex Theatres.

The chain estimates that five Megaplex locations will take spots in the Top 20 theaters nationwide for advance ticket sales. Most theaters will add more showtimes to accommodate demand, Andersen said.
