Here’s a 3D rendering of the building. Very cool!

It is! Though, that rendering makes it look like this location was like most every ‘80s/early '90s Edwards 'plex — meaning it probably had crummy fixed aspect ratio screens.

Here’s an article with a mention of the San Marcos 6.

http://retailtrafficmag.com/development/trends/retail_screen_gems/

“Edwards, a Newport Beach, Calif., company that merged into Regal Entertainment Group following bankruptcy, closed the Vineyard Twin Cinemas and six-screen Nordahl Road Cinema in Escondido, Calif., in 1998 after opening an 18-screener in nearby San Marcos. The San Marcos opening also prompted closure of the 15-year-old, independently run Del Norte Plaza Movies 8 cinema; when Del Norte management failed to find a new operator for the theater, it rented the gutted space to LA Fitness Clubs.”

Can anyone tell me exactly when this theater closed? I originally thought it was in the late 90’s, but now I’m not so sure. I think it was a bit later than that.

I lived in nearby Escondido, and my friend and I actually went to the San Marcos 6 the last night it was open; the 10:05 pm screening of ‘Final Destination’, on Thursday, May 11, 2000!
