The Harbor Twin was called the Harbor II when it opened on December 25, 1970 showing Disney’s “The Aristocats” and “Catch 22” on its screens. It opened on the same day as Edwards Cinema Viejo in Mission Viejo making them Edwards fifth and sixth Orange County locations and two years after the debut of their flagship theatre in Newport Beach.
The opening day ad said, “Each theatre is brand new. Each has luxury seats and wide space lounger loges, surround drapes and highly sophisticated projection equipment. Each theatre offers the ultimate in patron comfort and convenience. Each theatre has a giant scope screen and stereo sound, deep pile carpets and exciting contemporary decor. Each theatre was designed by a world famous architect and each theatre was decorated by the nation’s most outstanding theatre interior decorator”. The architect and designer were not named.
The theatre had two box offices, one at the front and one at the other end of the lobby, which ran to the back of the building where there was another parking lot. The second box office was apparently never used.
When it closed on October 11, 1998 it was a discount house charging $3.00, but hardly missed for Edwards at the time had 40 other county locations, which included five older discount houses awaiting their fate.
A new shopping center was later built on the site.
