Rumor holds true, as the Edwards Island 7 is set to shut down in early January and begin a year long remodel. Details, including whether Edwards/REG will continue as operators, remain a bit sketchy. However, the Irvine Company continues to allude to a high end upgrade for the twenty-one year old Newport Beach cinema. Whatever the end result might be, there is little doubt the theatre will be significantly larger, as the adjacent food court tenants are being pushed out, in favor of the “new and improved” Fashion Island cinema. Reopening of the theatre is scheduled for the 2011 holiday season.
