For a generation of Moorpark residents, catching a movie has meant spending a good 15 to 20 minutes on the freeway. The city's only theater closed in the '50s, killed by television, and even as the city's population boomed in the '80s, no new movie house took its place.

Commissioners heard from 50 speakers and spent until 2:45 a.m. before voicing their support for the 180,000-square-foot complex planned for Royal Avenue and Madera Road.

Trying to capitalize on their own investment, developers of a long-awaited movie theater and shopping complex in downtown Oxnard are attempting to buy 15 more parcels in the same area. "We have a number of offers out on properties we hope to incorporate into the International Marketplace concept," said David White, a principal partner in the theater project and in a second partnership that hopes to transform the downtown into a bazaar of restaurants, bookstores, shops and cultural festivals.
