The Riverside Press-Enterprise reported on January 15, 2005 that the Marketplace Cinema had closed on January 9 after 11 years of operation. The reason given was the opening of the Regal Riverside Plaza 16 the previous December. The film distributors told Bruce Sanborn, operator of the Movie Experience, that they could no longer supply him with first-run films. When it opened on June 24, 1994 it was considered cutting edge with two stadium auditoriums but since then more modern theaters had been built around Riverside. Plans were already in motion to convert the 1,600 seat cinema to other uses. In 2012 it is a learning institution.

This was actually a cool theatre. Two of the six houses were these nice big stadium style houses with nice curved scope screens. The theatre was equipped with dts in all six houses. I saw Wyatt Earp and True Lies in their big houses. A shame it is gone.
