This theater is set to reopen as a discount house. It has been completely remodeled. It is supposed to open Friday, 7/30/10.
The new name of this theater is Brea 5 Cinemas.
Something is seriously wrong with this theater.
First off the last film in IMAX here was Kung Fu Panda. I called the theater and the girl told me there are no plans to open it up any time soon.
Second, only 5 movies are being shown on the Family side.. And only 3 on the 21+ side. 5 screens are dark.
I sense that this theater won’t be around past Christmas.
Too many screens in this area period. This theater would have worked if it was located closer to Lake Elsinore which is really lacking a good theater. But they built it close (a mile or so) south of the wildly busy and successful Corona Crossings 18. Even if this theater was located in West Corona it may have been successful but in the middle of nowhere, with development of new homes stalled it was doomed from the beginning. If they would have made this area more like a destination than what it is.
Other theaters in the area include the AMC Tyler Mall 16.
Incorrect. Pacific is converting the Beach Cities 16 on Nash and Rosecrans to an Arclight. This will remain a 6 plex. I do expect it to play more mainstream films when the Arclight opens (with the art product going to there).
Its an old theater. I don’t know when it opened but I know it was a 7 plex for a long time. Around the mid 90’s it expanded to 14 screens to try and draw crowds that went to Montebello, Norwalk and surrounding areas
The 7 new screens do have stadium seating. I do not know if the old 7 were retrofitted. They do show a lot of movies with Spanish subtitles.
The 7 additional theaters were added on the third floor of a former Robinsons May depaartment store. These auditoriums are small and all have sloped floors. A second concession stand was built in the hallway going to these auditoriums.
This is now a 24 hour fitness. It was your typical UA design of the late 80’s where you had all 8 theater entrances in the lobby. Similar design to the UA Horton Plaza 7.
It was gutted and converted to a Trader Joes market.
This theater was converted to an H&M where the auditoriums were, and a Tiffanys where the lobby was.
The Triangle Square is actually an 8 screen multiplex.
It opened in 1993 as the Edwards Triangle Square 8. It is located on the upper level of the Triangle Square center in Costa Mesa. It was closed by regal in June 2010 and reopened in June 2010 as a Starlight Cinema.
At one point, this was to be the site of a Gold Class Cinema.
Actually this theater opened in the late 80’s as the Krikorian Terrace 6. In 1996 it was sold (along with most of the Krikorian chain) to Regal. It operated as a regal until they got rid of it in February 2010.
Mann has taken this theater off their website not long ago. Checking the recording they still have it as the Mann Criterion. Tomorrows news ads will tell the story..
Yes it is demolished. You can punch in the address in Bing Maps and look at the birds eye view. North amd south you will see the theater.. View it east and west you see it demolished.
Plus I go by that way a lot.
That’s what I thought. I didn’t know the downstairs were stadium. I have never seen a movie downstairs. Only upstairs twice in the same auditorium.
Ed.. I haven’t been to the Criterion for years.. Is it multi level too.. Right?
This theater opened in 1998 and was the first Glendale theater to feature Stadium Seating. It is located on the upper level of the Marketplace complex across the street from Americana and the Glendale Galleria malls.
Also this theater will close in 2011 when the lease is up due to the competition from Pacific’s 18 plex at the Americana.
This originally opened as the Mann Exchange 8. Around 1996 2 additional screens were built across the hallway from the original complex to form the Exchange 10. The largest theater in the complex was located in the new two plex. Both the two and eight plexes share the same central box office.
Did some checking online.
Janns Marketplace, Glendale 10 and 4 and the Plant 16 have no showtimes past Thursday.
Chinese, Chinese 6 and Westlake 8 have showtimes for Friday and past Friday.
I know its too early to speculate about the closure of these locations, but I know the Glendale 10 has been rumored to be packing it up soon. If the Criterion goes to AMC, I can see the Plant going to another operator as well.
This theater closed around 1997. It suffered once AMC Opened the new Covina 30.
The actual theater was demolished in 2009. Today the site is a Fresh and Easy.
This theater has already closed. Its last day in operation was 6-13.
Anyone who is interested, I have uploaded 25 of the 225 pictures I took on Thursday night to the Cinematour page on Facebook. Other pictures will be posted on Cinematour in the future.
What he meant was this is the first 20 screen theatre built, and now its closing.
Another AMC that is different from the rest is AMC La Jolla 12. It opened in 1994 before the stadium seating era, and is strange design with 3 theatres down a little hall to the right side of the main lobby, and 9 theatres down the main hall.
On a side note, the Loews designed AMC Atlantic Times Square 14 in Monterey Park I beleive is the very last Lowes designed theatre to open. It has the look of a Late model Lowes theatre, but who knows what the inside will be like. There are pictures of it floating around, but here is the layout:
There will be 2 theatres in the mail lobby area, and 14 down the hall. This theatre is scheduled to open sometime next year. Walls are not up yet.
