AMC Mission Valley 20

Opening with “Jumanji” in 1995, this theatre was the largest in San Diego at the time. Theatre is built on stilts above the parking structure below. It opened with twenty Strong projectors and Strong platters, all projectors with SDDS, some DTS and Dolby Digital as well.

This theatre was AMC’s first with stadium seating in San Diego. This mammoth ushered in the era of the megaplex to San Diego. Great location in the heart of San Diego.

Beyond San Diego, this was AMC’s first megaplex in southern California and one of the early test sites for fine tuning megaplex operations. I remember quite a few managers being sent to Mission Valley for training as the company launched it’s first generation of megaplexes. For a brief time, Mission Valley was quite the cutting edge marvel (before operators over saturated the market and nearly every community had it’s very own 20+ screen “marvel”).
