The Hutton Center 8 was one of the few, if the only Edwards location, to play midnight movies weekly on Fridays and Saturdays which were always packed. They had THX sound systems as well. This was one of the better Edwards locations because the screen size didn’t cut off any of the scope image like some of the earlier Edwards theatres did.

This was one of the better OC multiplexes, until Edwards lost interest in keeping it up and a less desirable element began frequenting the theatre. I recall the two large auditoriums having impressive screen sizes (for the time) and waterfall curtains (quite a rarity for the multiplex era). The entire theatre was a notch above most multiplexes of the day. Unfortunately, the Hutton Center’s glory days were relatively brief and the site went downhill fast, after Edwards moved on to megaplexes. The last time I went there (circa 96')it had already turned in to the kind of theatre one had second thoughts about going to.

Another great late 80’s/early 90’s OC venue.
