San Diego Council approves plan to demolish Starplex theater
SAN DIEGO, CA — It is not going to happen right away, but plans were approved to eventually demolish the Starplex Mission Valley 7 as part of a plan to revitalize the Hazard Center by building residential units. Organizers of the Asian and Latino film festivals, both of which have been annually held at the multiplex for several years, are concerned over the availability of another appropriate venue and the costs. The cinema opened in 1990 has the Mann Hazard 7.
