Passing of General Cinema Manager Israel (Izzy) Strier
A wonderful human being and dedicated theater manager for General Cinemas in Massachusetts, I just got word that Izzy Strier passed away on Thursday, May 18th, 2006 and his graveside service is planned for Sunday in Sharon, Massachusetts.
Hundreds of employees will remember his quick laugh, sharp wit, accented humor and ability to relate to anyone… CEO to cleaning staff. He managed the busy General Cinema in Shopper’s World, Framingham and was a legend there. Customers will remember the short, fiery, “can do” manager who somehow juggled a busy six theater complex and 100 young employees (like me, once!) with ease and humor. A legend in his own time, and he will be missed.
I’d clean the stickiest theater floor for you Izzy, any day.
