I think I spent every Friday night at this theater during the mid to late 1980s. Always packed on the weekends with lively moviegoers. Some memorable opening night screenings include: Aliens (70mm), Star Trek IV, Platoon, Three Amigos, Beverly Hills Cop II, The Untouchables, Die Hard (at least three weekends in a row), Scrooged, Batman, Silence of the Lambs, Colors, Willow, Red Heat, the list goes on and on so I’ll stop here. Regency Charter Center is a living monument to the mostly vanishing Edwards theaters of the 1980s.

I dropped by one of my favorite childhood theaters this weekend which now operates as a discount house. Happy to report that the 30 year old establishment continues to thrive and is well looked after by Regency. It’s a perfectly preserved relic from the 80s. It’s amazing they can stay in business with such low prices. That said, business was booming on the day of my visit.

Sad news. Just over 30 years of operation. That’s a pretty good run. So many memories. This one hurts.
