The most irresponsible, reckless place I’ve ever been. I’ve been on the last session of the movie and was the last person to leave the hall. Unfortunattely I left my bag in the hall, and as the cinema was already closed I came back to get it early in the morning, an hour before the first performance starts. There’s no way anyone could enter the hall except the cinema staff. The hall was cleared, and my bag was missing. They did nothing to find out who took it. They take no responsibility for their staff, so be aware…

The theatre opened on 9/17/1999.

Back in the mid 90’s, AMC announced they were going to build a 24 screen theatre on this property. However, by 1997, AMC had pulled out of the deal and Regal stepped in. This was Regal’s third build in the county, preceeded by La Habra 16 and Garden Grove 16 (also opened in 1999). Regal had initially entered Southern California via the purchase of Krikorian Theatres' original chain, in 1996.

Prior to the opening, Edwards had threatened to build a 16 screen theatre across the toll road from the Regal site. After scrapping that plan, Edwards breifly entered in to buy out talks for the theatre, but that too fell through. Of course, within a few years Edwards filed for bankrupcy and the two companies fell under the REG banner.
