After eight of years of planning and nine months of construction The Krikorian Village Walk 15 opened on October 26, 2007. The biggest obstacle surfaced in 2002 when construction was halted after lead contamination from a former metals recycling plant was found on the property. All of the problems contributed to a two-year delay in construction.
Krikorian had purchased the property around 2000 for about $4 million from the city who spent $12 million to acquire it. The city also paid to clean up soil contamination and relocate businesses and residents of a mobile home park on the property.
The Whittier Daily News said that it was the first theater in the city since the 2000 closing of the nearby Fiesta 4 Drive-In.
George Krikorian owns the whole center, which includes 11 stores. The total cost of the center, designed by Perkowitz+Ruth, was $24 million. The theatre was taken over by Cinepolis Luxury Cinemas on February 11,2015.
