Not included in Edwards Grand Opening ad (see photo section) for Thanksgiving Eve, 1995 was Carrington, an art house film staring Emma Thompson and Jonathon Pryce, which played in one of the smallest auditoriums. The film was gone by the next week.

Let me correct myself. The old Krikorian 7 Theatre was closed, but it was never converted.
Currently it is a discount house operated by Interstate Theatres, based in Dallas, Texas.
