Edwards Ontario Palace 22 & IMAX

Opened March 21, 1997, the Edwards Ontario Palace 22 is one of the big multiplexs in Southern California. Located in the parking lot of the Ontario Mills Outlet Mall. This theatre also houses one of socal’s large format IMAX screens. The IMAX is one of the larger one’s at 91' wide by 67' high (roughly almost seven stories tall) and seats 480.

There are also three themed main auditoriums. Theatre 11 is called “The Palace”, seats 750 people and has a 70 foot wide screen. Theatre 1 is called “The Chinese”, seats 350 people, screen size unknown. Theatre 22 is called “The Hollywood”, seats 350 people, screen size unknown. The three are only decorated and themed on the outside of the auditoriums, the insides are sadly unthemed and as regular looking as any theatre built in the 1990’s.

I know of a few other Edwards Theatres that have the same Concept using themed auditoriums. One is the Edwards Irvine Spectrum 21 and IMAX, and the other is the Edwards West Covina 18. A couple years ago (give or take) Edwards merged or was aquired by Regal Entertainment Group which also did the same with United Artists Theatres. However these theatres have all retained the brand name they had.

Quite possibly one of the best megaplexes ever built.

I’ve seen some great multiplex auditoriums in my time. But in the world of megaplexes, NOTHING COMPARES to that fabulous awesome “Grand Palace” auditorium at this theatre! As the description above says, it’s 750 seats, screen is 70 feet wide and it’s all stadium seating. Both the sound and picture is PHENOMINAL! Before I had kids, my wife and I used to drive up here twice a year just to see movies in this particular auditorium.

IMO, it is the GREATEST 35MM projection auditorium built specifically for a megaplex. Ever.

I don’t know for sure, but I imagine it will be.

Oh Man. Theater 11, “The Grand Palace” is closed for conversion into an RPX screen. That is a shame, it was one of the best auditoriums as it was, now they will charge double, and all showings no doubt will be in 3D as this was the last large auditorium that only showed 2D as they couldn’t get enough light on the screen for 3D. Let’s hope that they install Dolby Atmos at least and a duel projector set up so we can actually see a proper image on that 80 foot screen.

I have been twice to the Edwards Imax and both times the sound was so bad the experience was ruined. The bass speakers were set up so high for Interstellar that the speakers and even the ventilators were buzzing loudly even during some quiet passages. Complaining to the manager made no difference. I will not be coming back here.

How is this theatre surviving despite competing fiercely against AMC Dine-In Ontario Mills 30? I know they both show different movies, and this theatre has an IMAX, whereas the AMC has Dolby Cinema.
