Santa Ana Movie Complex Making a Comeback

November 17, 2000|Leslie Earnest

Movie buff Todd Blood is undertaking a formidable task--breathing life into an abandoned six-screen Santa Ana theater complex that succumbed to a glut of flashy megaplexes, including the Southland's highest-grossing theater a couple of miles away. Blood, who resurrected a darkened single-screen theater in Orange seven years ago, plans to reopen the six-screen movie house today at MainPlace/Santa Ana mall, seven weeks after struggling chain AMC Entertainment Inc. shut the theater. The revival comes just in time for the official launch of the holiday shopping season at MainPlace, which generates about 25% of its sales from mid-November through the end of the year.
