The Plaza Theatre III was located behind the South Coast Plaza II Theatre in a separate building, but was marketed by Edwards as the third screen of the larger theatre.
It has a tiered seating format, a variation of stadium seating with two rows on each level. The lobby and all facilities are neatly tucked under the risers.
National General Theatres built it in 1970 and it opened on November 25, 1970 with Spencer Tracy in “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World”. It was taken over by Mann Theatres in 1973. Edwards operated it from 1981 until it closed in 2000 because of its bankruptcy.
In 2002 plans were announced to build a high-rise building on the site.
