Edwards enters L.A.

Exhib to unveil plans for 22-screen site

Plans will be announced on Monday for a massive new megaplex to be built at L.A.’s Howard Hughes Entertainment Center, with a 22-screen cinema and a new Imax theater expected in the project.

The Edwards Cinemas megaplex would be the chain’s first project in the city of Los Angeles, and one of the largest theater clusters in Los Angeles County. It would be built next to the San Diego Freeway at Howard Hughes Parkway in the Howard Hughes Center.

Few details were released about the project, although details were expected to be unveiled at the Howard Hughes Center ceremony on Monday with Los Angeles City Councilwoman Ruth Galanter.

The project would be located across the San Diego Freeway from the Fox Hills Mall.

The megaplex and entertainment center are being developed by the J.H. Snyder Co.

In one of the year’s big exhib stories, the Newport Beach-based Edwards opened a 22-theater megaplex in San Bernardino County’s Ontario in March, just opposite a 30-screen AMC site.

Imax has over the past few years been expanding from museum-based venues into commercial entertainment centers. The Edwards Irvine and Ontario locations both boast Imax theaters.
