Previous Names: Edwards Tustin Market Place 6
Although the Market Place 6 is in a suburban shopping center, its layout is not built on any traditional California architectural model. Entering the freestanding building gave one a slightly urban feeling. Its auditoriums were on the second floor, above the restaurants and shops. The auditoriums sat side by side across from a row of long rectangular windows, reaching nearly to the floor, which give waiting moviegoers a view of the shopping center.
When Edwards Cinemas opened it on August 7, 1992 with Clint Eastwood in “Unforgiven”. At that time tickets were bought on the outside ground level three-window boxoffice but that has been closed for many years. The escalators took you upstairs to the entrance and lobby where tickets were purchased at the concession stand.
The very modern interior still seemed contemporary and the non-stadium seating was very spacious. Its movies were mainly moveovers from the Edwards Stadium 10, across the street. There may be reason for its longevity, despite the Edwards 10 across the street and AMC’s District 14, three miles away. Its demise could have potentially spell bad news for the restaurants and stores surrounding it, such as California Pizza Kitchen. Regal has probably negotiated very attractive terms with their landlord, the Irvine Company.
The Tustin Market Place 6 was closed on October 7, 2012.
