San Diego Council approves plan to demolish Starplex theater

SAN DIEGO, CA — It is not going to happen right away, but plans were approved to eventually demolish the Starplex Mission Valley 7 as part of a plan to revitalize the Hazard Center by building residential units. Organizers of the Asian and Latino film festivals, both of which have been annually held at the multiplex for several years, are concerned over the availability of another appropriate venue and the costs. The cinema opened in 1990 has the Mann Hazard 7.

There’s a story with pictures (that appeared before the vote was taken) in KPBS.

The Mission Valley 7 in the Hazard Center is operated by Ultrastar Cinemas, not Starplex.

This won’t happen for another two years according to Lee Ann Kim. If it happens at all- the company that wants to do the demolishing has to get money together for the “rejuvenation” of Hazard Center…
This will be missed- it’s the only decent place to see a movie in Mission Valley. The AMC’s are either awful (AMC 20) or too small (Fashion Valley).
