Wow!
Finally got a photo of this theater.
I was born and raised in Westminster Calif and this was one of 2 theaters in my town I saw movies at growing up (the UA Twin being the other)
Just thought I’d say that I am not sure when the Photo was taken but that I did catch Remo Williams at the Cinema West in 85.
I remember one huge screen that was like 3 or maybe 4 stories high, another screen in the next room that was also huge but slightly (cont)

I remember going to this theater at least twice in 1981. The first time was when “Star Wars” had its 1981 re-release in the Spring, which was for one week only. Because it was for one-week only, and because home video was still in its infancy and Star Wars hadn’t gotten to home video yet), my sister and I went here on the first Saturday and stayed for FOUR consecutive showings of the film, their entire run for the day, starting at 1 pm and ending sometime around 10 or 11 at night. Funny thing, for some strange reason the theater inserted an intermission break at the hour point. Every single showing, audience members blinked in disbelief and a few hesitantly took a break in the lobby. We just got up and stretched a few times, then sat back down. It was only like a 5 or 10 minute break. But for a 2 hour movie?

Anyway, the second memory I have of the Edwards Cinema West is seeing “Raiders of the Lost Ark” with a full house on opening weekend (might have been pening night, I’m not certain). What. A. Blast. The audience reactions were just great; laughter, oohs, aahs, screams, shouts, cheers, etc.

I’m not sure if I ever saw any movies before or after 1981 at the Cinema West, but I remember it as a pretty decent theater and I remember being upset upon learning in 1995 that it had been torn down and replaced with a new multiplex.
