I remember this theater from when I was a kid. In fact I believe I saw Titantic there with my mom, my brother and my grandma. It was part of the Carosel Shopping Center in Oceanside.

Here is an article from the LA Times, dated 6/13/80:

Eight new motion picture theaters will open today in Oceanside. The new theaters, named El Camino 8, are operated by Mann Theaters, operators of the world-famous Chinese Theater in Hollywood. Mann El Camino is part of an expansion plan set up by company president Ted Mann several years ago that has opened more than 130 new screens. The El Camino is part of this master plan.

Also planned for opening this month are the Poca Fiesta 4 in Mesa, Arizona and the Rancho Bernardo 8 in Rancho Bernardo.

This theater was also known as the Mann Oceanside 8. It closed in February 2000. The seats reportedly were sold to Oceanside’s Sunshine Brooks theater. A Barnes and Noble store sits on the spot of the demolished theater.
