Harkins Camelview 5 opened in 1973 as a twin cinema on an outparcel of the Camel View Plaza mall. The mall has since merged into Scottsdale Fashion Square. For decades it’s been one of the very few independent venues for limited-release films in the whole state of Arizona.

As of September 2013 Camelview is threatened with demolition as part of Fashion Square expansion. Harkins leases the property and isn’t responsible for the decision. It’ll be replaced with — parking and landscaping.

Visited this multiplex for the first time I’m December 2012 to catch a showing of HITCHCOCK.

Posted two photos of the entrance.

Auditorium two seats about 400, auds 1 and 3 looks to be about 250, auditorium 5, the “screening room” seats about 40. Aud 2 is a fairly nice place, large screen – auds 1 and 3 look like a larger screen twinned down the middle (off-center screen). The complex opened in 1973.
