Although the Marketplace 6 is in a suburban shopping center, its layout is not built on any traditional California architectural model. Entering the freestanding building gives one a slightly urban feeling. Its auditoriums are on the second floor, above the restaurants and shops. The auditoriums sit side by side across from a row of long rectangular windows, reaching nearly to the floor, which give waiting moviegoers a view of the shopping center.
When Edwards Cinemas opened it in August of 1990, tickets were bought on the outside ground level three-window boxoffice but that has been closed for many years. Today the escalators take you upstairs to the entrance and lobby where tickets are purchased at the concession stand.
Its very modern interior still seems contemporary at this writing in 2011 and the non-stadium seating seems very spacious. Its movies are mainly moveovers from the Edwards Stadium 10, across the street. There may be reason for its longevity, despite the Edwards 10 across the street and AMC’s District 14, three miles away. It demise could potentially spell bad news for the restaurants and stores surrounding it, such as California Pizza Kitchen. Regal has probably negotiated very attractive terms with their landlord, the Irvine Company.
The Tustin Marketplace 6 was closed on October 7, 2012.
