Anaheim, CA: GardenWalk IMAX Closes, Future of Rest of Theater in Doubt

Posted on Thursday, July 22nd, 2010 5:00 PM. Last Updated on Wednesday, August 18th, 2010 12:35 PM by Scott Jentsch

The Orange County Register is reporting that the CinemaFusion - Anaheim GardenWalk in Anaheim, California, has closed the IMAX theater, and that the future of the rest of the theater is in doubt:

North Orange County's only IMAX theater has shut down and the attached 21-and-over screening rooms – the county's only movie theaters serving alcohol – are in jeopardy amid continuing financial troubles at the GardenWalk mall. Owners of CinemaFusion Theatre and Sky Lobby Lounge, who failed to remain current on lease payments leading to bankruptcy hearings, had first been ordered to be out by Friday.

But after shutting down the IMAX theater and beginning to unbolt chairs from seven of the 14 theaters, the property owner, Citicorp, asked the theater operator, Newport Beach-based Sanborn Theatres Inc., to halt the dismantling and keep operating what is left of the theater until mid-August.

The article goes on to say that the owners of the theater are talking to UltraStar Cinemas about taking over the location.
