When the AMC Orange Mall 6 opened on December 16, 1971 it was billed as the West Coast’s first six-screen complex. The Orange County Register said that of AMC’s 203 theatres, this was their sixth six-screen operation.
This came a few years after they opened a four-screen complex in La Habra with irregularly shaped auditoriums and poor sight lines, which indeed made movie going there “complex”.
The 1800 seats at the Orange theatre, which was situated in a separate building outside the mall, were divided among rectangular auditoriums, giving a vast improvement over their effort in La Habra. My positive memories of the theatre were the super-fast, well-staffed concession stands which gave you almost immediate service. Among the opening movies were crowd-pleasers of the 70s such as “Billy Jack” and “The Summer of ‘42”.
The last day the Orange Mall 6 was in the theatre listings was April 20, 1997. The building was later demolished.
In late 1998 AMC opened a new theatre in Orange, five miles away, AMC 30 at The Block.
