The sad ending to the once powerful Mann chain looks to have reached its final act. This past week, Regency Theatres took over the Janss Marketplace 9, leaving Mann with one operating theatre.
With a lineage that stretches back to the Fox theatre chain of the late 1920’s, Mann’s decline, over the past two decades, has been stunning, to say the least. Having formerly operated industry cornerstones, like Grauman’s Chinese and the fabled Westwood cinemas; expanded to some 510 screens, at the chain’s peak; Mann now faces the inevitable curtain call with only the Westlake Village 8 on its cast list.
