The AMC Plaza 10 opened in the mid-1980’s and was the first ten-plex in the San Gabriel Valley. It was part of AMC’s Puente Hills group of theatres that Included Plaza 10, Puente 6, and Puente 4. 20 screens in the mid-1980’s within blocks of each other (Mann later added a 6 plex next to the Puente 4).

Plaza 10 was legendary in 1993 having ten screens of Jurassic Park (with 16 more screens, they could do it).

In 1996 It was announced that AMC would build a new 20 plex in the Puente Hills Mall taking over a closed down Broadway department store that closed in 1995.

The new AMC Puente 20 opened in 1998. This closed the AMC Puente 6 and 4, and Mann 6 but the Plaza kept on going. It was sharing films with the AMC Puente 20, but never did the business it could do.

Then, it was turned into a dollar house in its final days, but never survived. It closed in 1999. The building stood vacant for several years but was later demolished.

Driving by, construction crews are starting to gut out the theatre. Is demolition soon?

How weird, it was right off the freeway where I managed my apartment building, besides projection stuff…

Saw WAR OF THE ROSES here on a date in December of ‘89. Theater was only two years old then, and certainly seemed new. This house had the ill luck – like other multiplexes which opened mid-80s to '92 -of opening just before the stadium seating/high-quality sound revolution. Any theater without those accoutrements quickly became moribund, even if was only three or four years old. All San Gabriel Valley theaters constructed in the 70s or 80s are sleeping with the fishes.
