The Triangle Square is actually an 8 screen multiplex.
It opened in 1993 as the Edwards Triangle Square 8. It is located on the upper level of the Triangle Square center in Costa Mesa. It was closed by regal in June 2010 and reopened in June 2010 as a Starlight Cinema.
At one point, this was to be the site of a Gold Class Cinema.
The Triangle Square 8 opened in June of 1992, as Edwards' 34th theatre. As with the Triangle Square center, the theatre started off as an area “hot spot”, but fell out of favor within a few years. After major center tenants, like Niketown and Virgin Megastore, departed, the theatre (and surrounding shopping center) became a virtual ghost town.
During it’s heyday, the Triangle Square 8 featured a large cafe and expanded arcade; located in an angular shaped room, off the lobby’s southern side. After attendance fell, the area was converted in to a birthday party rental space.
Was it run by Regal in 2001?
Any photos and more info?
This strangely-worded article about the theater’s takeover by Starlight tries to suggest that there’s a “new” theater where the Edwards Triangle Square used to be: View link
According to an article in the August 1991 edition of Boxoffice, construction of this theatre was started by Cineplex Odeon Theatres.
