Orange County's theater community underwent some dramatic changes last week. First, SoCal Cinemas opened a 43,560-square-foot cinema called Cinemapolis in Anaheim on Wednesday. The theater features 10 screens. Then Landmark Theatre Corp. bought the historic Port Theatre in Corona del Mar for an undisclosed sum.
