This theater has definitely been demolished. You can see it if you look at http://www.historicaerials.com and compare the 1989 aerial to the 2003/2005 aerial.

The original operator was American International Theatres (AIT). Edwards acquired it (and other area venues) in 1985.

MSC77 – You are absolutely correct. AIT, by the way, was an upstart chain started by John Ellison, a former Mann Theatres DM. AIT built this theatre and it was considered a state-of-the-art, top-quality facility at the time. Unfortunately for AIT, many other new screens also opened in North County then (including the UA8 in Escondido).
