The Krikorian Redlands Cinema 14 opened on November 26, 1997 with 14 screens. The Riverside Press-Enterprise said that it was expected to draw 750,000 people a year, and even as it opened Krikorian wanted to add more screens. By September of 2000 plans were afoot by George Krikorian to add six more screens. Over the years Krikorian submitted various plans to expand the theatre but none came to fruition. One of the reasons given was that local preservationists opposed the expansion because it would mean the demolition of an historic packinghouse. Krikorian owns all of the land around the packinghouse but the packinghouse is owned by the city redevelopment agency.
George Krikorian still has not added to his original 14-screen theatre nor has he built another theatre outside the city limits, as he once proposed. The latest plan submitted in July of 2011 was to build a Sprouts market in the packinghouse, through adaptive reuse. As of November 2011 the city was still debating the issue.
It was taken over by Studio Movie Grill on September 1, 2017. It was closed on March 17, 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Studio Movie Grill declared bankruptcy on October 25, 2020 and it was later announced the closure would be permanent.
In May 2021 it was taken over by the Dallas, TX based LOOK Dine-In Cinemas.
