This theater will be closing on Aug 14th. It will be renovated into a luxury cinema ran by Cinepolis who recently opened their first US theater in Del Mar.

The time is almost up on this place. The shopping center is going to undergo a remodel and not in the plans are the ua6. It may be almost 40 years old but its end is near.

Those pictures made me cringe. I recognize theater 1 and the hallway leading from the stairs, the area where the old second stand used to be, and I think one is the lobby hall over by theaters 5-6-7 and that area where the booth came around the tall ceiling. I want to go just check out the store to see how much of the cinema still remains..

Status should be updated to closed.

Also there is an article on how the theater is in the process of being gutted. TOBY KEITHS restaurant chain is opening a location in 30,000 sq feet of the building.

Due to declining business, AMC has apparently closed one wing of the the theater and currently running it as a 17 plex. No plans on what they plan to do with the closed wing. This theater has suffered attendance decline since AMC opened their Glendora 12 a few miles away.

From the looks of it, Pacific is still running it for the rest of the week. Regency takes over Friday.

Getting pictures may require two trips to this theater since two auditoriums are in a seperate building across from the orginal 8.

jmarellano commented about UltraStar upgrades its Garden Walk Theater in Anaheim on Feb 1, 2011 at 8:36 pm

For the record they had a former IMAX screen they needed to fill… they went this route.

They are also not charging extra for the upgraded auditorium .. something other chains should follow suit doing.

Does anyone know if the theaters have been demolished or are still there. I visited this location a few years back and it still was there but hidden in the back of the center.

This theater recently has been upgraded to all digital projection. Not too shabby for an almost 20 year old theater that has had a ton of competition open.

it is still listed on the Mariner Mall website. It seems to have been expanded at some point to 7 screens. it seems to be an independent.

jmarellano commented about San Bernardino Stadium 14 & RPX on Sep 22, 2010 at 7:36 am

It is an amc design. Identical to all mid 90’s megas. This particular unit is a direct clone of Puente 20, sans the large lobby due to Puente being inside a mall.

The closing date has been pushed back to the end of the year from whht has been told.

jmarellano commented about AMC Atlantic Times Square 14 on Sep 20, 2010 at 11:04 pm

I took my first trip to the ATS and its amazing. Its so Loews, yet so AMC. It has the Loews spotlight design on the outside design and inside the carpet has the loews spotlights. Three auditoriums (1, 2 and 14) are handicap accesible on the top. Definity you don’t see that much anymore. It is an odd design as its all one long hallway with 12 theaters and 2 in the main corridor. Stairs take you from the lobby to the theaters and a ramp hidden behind a false wall for handicap. The theaters are also numbered counter clockwise which is rare.. Especially for AMC. It has large screens even in the smaller auditoriums. It took a step away from AMC in the auditorium design.

Pictures have been sent to cinematour.
